Legends, fairy tales, and beliefs are the screens onto which we project our fears, hopes, secrets, and desires. After my daughter was born, I felt that knowing the cultural tales about people with her condition, whether they were frightening or beautiful, would help me understand the shape of her life. As you can tell from these lines Urquhart is also a master storyteller, choosing evocative words to describe situations that are both knowable and unknowable to all parents.

Over the course of Beyond the Pale Urquhart takes the reader on a few journeys—actual physical ones. The way Urquhart struggles with these questions ultimately reflects her greatest quality as a writer. From the start she isn't afraid to make the personal political, to delve into her particular experience while also acknowledging its limits and investigating what lies beyond them.
Urquhart's as interested in championing individuality as she is in embracing our shared humanity. But she never shies away from the fact that cherishing both can be a knotty, contradictory affair.
