Reviews

'This book is one of the best literary critical accounts I have read in a long time. Hall writes with great clarity and addresses the complexity of 'disability' in a highly intelligent and nuanced manner. Her insights into the representation of disability in the fiction of Faulkner, Morrison and Coetzee are first rate.' - Paul Crawford, Professor of Health Humanities, University of Nottingham, UK
