Disfigured : On Fairy Tales, Disability, and Making Space
by Amanda Leduc




Overview -

Fairy tales shape how we see the world, so what happens when you identify more with the Beast than Beauty?


ONE OF ENTROPY MAGAZINE'S BEST NONFICTION OF 2020/2021



If every disabled character is mocked and mistreated, how does the Beast ever imagine a happily-ever-after? Amanda Leduc looks at fairy tales from the Brothers Grimm to Disney, showing us how they influence our expectations and behaviour and linking the quest for disability rights to new kinds of stories that celebrate difference.


"Leduc persuasively illustrates the power of stories to affect reality in this painstakingly researched and provocative study that invites us to consider our favorite folktales from another angle." --Sara Shreve, Library Journal
