This book is written by the author of the Dogs of Babel, and while it’s no masterpiece (it’s kind of an odd nut), it is a thought provoking glimpse into a family with a child on the autism spectrum, and the lengths they’ll go through to help their child in any way that they can.
The story is mixed with a large dose of humor. I wasn’t a huge fan of the ending, but I’m glad that I read this. I feel like I’ve gained a deeper level of understanding, and the thoughts expressed in the afterword provided a beautiful perspective. 4.5 stars!
