Review of "The Fantasy of Disability: Images of Loss in Popular Culture"

  • Mikhel Hudrlik California State University San Bernardino

Abstract

Portrayals of disability in mainstream culture and media, and questions about the implications they have for disabled people, are not new. However, in The Fantasy of Disability: Images of loss in popular culture, Jeffrey Preston takes those questions to new places. This book challenges how we think of, analyze, and view disability in popular culture, and whose disability narratives are being told.
