Praise for Katie Rose Guest Pryal’s Nonfiction:
“Katie Rose Guest Pryal is one of the foremost writers of disability and higher education we have today.” –Catherine J. Prendergast, author of Buying into English: Language and Investment in the New Capitalist World
“These thoughtfully chosen and arranged essays grapple with issues relevant to disabled students and scholars as well as those who would be allies. With a particular focus on mental illness and other forms of invisible disability, Pryal calls on us to do much, much better.” -Kecia Ali, Ph.D., author of Sexual Ethics and Islam: Feminist Reflections on Qur’an, Hadith, and Jurisprudence
“Pryal’s wit and humor shine through even as she tackles harrowing subjects, like living with depression and suicide. She shows us how important it is to make academia, and our world, more accessible for everyone. … This is not a book to miss.” -Kelly J. Baker, author of Sexism Ed: Essays on Gender and Labor in Higher Education
“Ultimately, Pryal’s becomes both a cautionary tale and a beacon of hope for frustrated academics in similar positions. The Freelance Academic traces a path out of traditional academia with grace and humor.” –Foreword Reviews
“A roadmap that’s as practical as it is hopeful.” -Bestselling author Camille Pagán for Booktrib Magazine
“So many academics—current, former, and struggling—will see themselves in Pryal’s story. I hope just as many see all of the possibilities she enumerates, and understand, as she does, that the passions and talents that draw us to the university in the first place are often best used outside it.” -Rebecca Schuman, Ph.D., author of Schadenfreude, A Love Story
“With candor and vulnerability, Pryal shares her own experiences and hard-fought wisdom to make a compelling case for a rewarding professional life beyond the walls of traditional academia. And best of all—she’ll show you how.” -Amy Impellizzeri, award-winning novelist and author of Lawyer Interrupted: Successfully Transitioning from the Practice of Law–and Back Again
“An indictment of how the academy squanders talent by embracing the gig economy through contingent labor and the devaluation of teaching. A new, necessary book.” -Catherine J. Prendergast, Ph.D., author of Buying into English: Language and Investment in the New Capitalist World
