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. 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
“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
