Since its debut in 2016, the New York Times “Disability” series has brought insight to millions of readers into what it means, and how it feels, to live with a disability. The life stories, by authors with disabilities that range from blindness and deafness to chronic illness and depression, speak to the fullness of human experience. These compelling accounts of childhood, love, sex, conflict, resourcefulness, and joy, both topical and timeless, have influenced public opinion and promoted the social and civil rights of America’s largest minority group. Echoing the refrain of the disability rights movement, “nothing about us without us,” this collection, with a foreword by Andrew Solomon, presents more than sixty essays from the series, including “Becoming Disabled,” “I Use a Wheelchair. And, Yes, I’m Your Doctor,” and “10 Things My Chronic Illness Taught My Children.” Overturning pervasive stereotypes, About Us reveals how disabled people have survived and flourished in a world not yet built for them.

About the Editors:

Peter Catapano has been an opinion editor at The New York Times since 2005, where he has developed and edited several online series, including The Stone, Home Fires—which featured writing by US military veterans—and Anxiety, a multidimensional exploration of panic, worry and fear. He was recognized for his work in pioneering blogs and series for The New York Times with a Publisher's Award in 2008.

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