Through a series of critical essays this book concerns itself with the relationships and possibilities in and between "prose" and "disability". The critical and/or personal essays in this book all try to explore this potent inbetween space – a place full of possibilities. These prose pieces reflect on prose themselves as they stretch in an uneven yet interesting line from Hay’s ‘modern’ essay on deformity through nineteenth century literary and cultural sensibilities about working bodies, wars and "normalcy" and also through contemporary considerations over the role of metaphor as it marks the disabled body in critical-creative "personal" essays that pose even as they prose the considerable possibilities for disability as represented in and through prose.

This book was first published a special issue of Prose Studies.
