Disfigured: On Fairy Tales, Disability, and Making Space points the way toward a new world where disability is no longer portrayed as a punishment or impediment but operates, instead, as a way of centering a protagonist and helping them to cement their own place in a story, and from there, the world. The book examines fairy tale archetypes – the beautiful princess, the glass slipper, the maiden with long hair trapped in the tower – and tries to make sense of them through a twenty-first-century disablist lens.
