Am I Normal?

The idea that we can judge something to be “normal” or “abnormal” is so ingrained that it is quite startling when someone questions its legitimacy. This is exactly what Sarah Chaney does in her excellent new book, Am I Normal? The 200-Year Search for Normal People (And Why They Don’t Exist), that looks at the surprisingly recent history of the concept of normal. Her writing synthesises work on the social construction of normality, pioneered in sociology and disability studies, with her own research, insights, and experiences.
