"Pryal writes with a refreshing and raw honesty." -New York Times bestselling author Kate Moretti for Booktrib Magazine"Life of the Mind Interrupted is personal, political, polemical, and pointed in its vision for transforming higher education to be more inclusive of disabled and mentally ill people. ... If you want to understand how higher education is built, and not built, for people with disabilities--especially mental health-related ones--Pryal's book is for you." -Bookriot"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
