Katie Rose Guest Pryal is one of the foremost writers of disability and the higher education we have today. Like Kay Redfield Jamison and Elyn Saks, Pryal pulls aside the curtain to look at what academic life is like for someone with a mental disability. With unmatched legal insight into the intersection of disability and university life, Pryal’s writing is also accessible. Reading her writing is like sitting down to coffee with a friend. Covering vital topics such as disclosure, collegiality, and accommodations, Life of the Mind Interrupted helps academics and friends of academics navigate the thickets of higher education, where expectations of “sound mind” are cruelly at odds with the reality of disability. In Pryal’s work we see hope: For a kinder, more just, more capacious understanding of what it means to be human, to pursue knowledge, and to educate.

—Catherine J. Prendergast, Ph.D., Professor of Disability Studies
