Based on the historic New York Times series, About Us features intimate, firsthand accounts on what it means, and how it feels, to live with a disability.

Boldly claiming a space where people with disabilities tell the stories of their own lives—not other’s stories about them—About Us captures the voices of a community that has for too long been stereotyped and misrepresented. Speaking not only to people with disabilities and their support networks, but to all of us, the authors in About Us offer intimate stories of how they navigate a world not built for them. Echoing the refrain of the disability rights movement, “nothing about us without us,” this collection, with a foreword by Andrew Solomon, is a landmark publication of the disability movement for readers of all backgrounds, communities, and abilities.

Peter Catapano is an award-winning opinion editor at the New York Times and the coeditor of several books, including About Us: Essays from the Disability Series of the New York Times.

Rosemarie Garland-Thomson is a professor of English and bioethics at Emory University.
