JIM FERRIS is a poet and communication scholar at the University of 
Wisconsin-Madison, with a particular interest in humanities-based 
disability studies. With experience as playwright, performance artist, 
director, and actor, he has performed widely in the U.S. and Canada, 
and his writing has appeared in dozens of publications including 
the Georgia Review and the Michigan Quarterly Review. At the UW- 
Madison, Ferris led the successful effort to establish a disability 
studies cluster as part of the university's interdisciplinary hiring 
initiative, which will result in the hiring of three scholars in disability
studies over the next few years. 
Facts of Life is the thirty-eighth chapbook in the poetry series 
published by the Parallel Press, an imprint of the University of 
Wisconsin-Madison Libraries.
