520    "The story of Jamie Berube's journey to adulthood and a 
       meditation on disability in American life Published in 
       1996, Life as We Know It introduced Jamie Berube to the 
       world as a sweet, bright, gregarious little boy who loves 
       the Beatles, pizza, and making lists. At four, he is like 
       many young people his age, but his Down syndrome leads 
       most people to see him only in terms of his disability. 
       Twenty years later, Jamie is no longer little, though he 
       still loves the Beatles, pizza, and making lists. In Life 
       as Jamie Knows It, Michael Berube chronicles his son's 
       growth and his growing love of the world, writing as both 
       a disability studies scholar and as a father. He follows 
       Jamie through the transitions within his family and home 
       life, through his school years, through the complicated 
       process of entering the workforce with a disability. In a 
       book that joins stirring memoir and sharp philosophical 
       inquiry, Berube guides us through the labyrinth of ethical
       issues surrounding how we approach disability and uses 
       Jamie's story to argue for a deeper understanding of 
       disability that challenges us to move toward a more just, 
       more inclusive society"--|cProvided by publisher.
