Reviews

The book grapples with the way disability stories are told and the way disability history is told (or more often untold). It identifies many of the problems with the way nondisabled people tell these stories and the way disability communities have historically silenced marginalized groups such as disabled people of color and disabled queer people. - Tegan Kehoe, Disability Studies Quarterly

This book of essays chronicles one person's life, but also the 40 years that disability rights and disability justice shaped American history. Bursting with ideas, stories, and arguments, Fading Scars is a book in which experience accrues into knowledge and emerges through the written word as wisdom. - Margaret Price, author of Mad at School: Rhetorics of Mental Disability and Academic Life

Illuminating disability history with clear and funny stories, this book builds a home where those of us who have lived on the sidelines can seek shelter. - Naomi Ortiz, Writer, Artist and Disability Justice Activist

"Fading Scars is a must read for those interested in disability community, activism, and scholarship." - Kim Nielsen, author of A Disability History of the United States (ReVisioning American History)
