Disability scholar and father Michael Bérubé chronicles his son Jamie’s journey to adulthood with Down syndrome, exploring his growing curiosity and engagement with the world, his social and academic experiences in school, his evolving relationships with his family, and the complexities of entering the workplace with a disability. With a combination of stirring memoir and sharp intellectual inquiry, Bérubé tangles with bioethicists, philosophers, and anyone else who doubts the value of a life lived with disability. Life as Jamie Knows It challenges us to rethink how we approach disability as we move toward a more just, more inclusive society.
