Product Details

Praise

“An astonishing and riveting tale from the ‘inside’ of autism—brave, brutal, funny, triumphant and terribly moving.  As a doctor, I had no idea, and now I do.  Required reading for anyone—parent, teacher, school-mate, health-care worker—who knows a person with this syndrome.” —Samuel Shem, M.D, author of The House of God and The Spirit of the Place.

“Haunting, original, dazzling in its mixture of fancy and specificity, a welcome addition to memory and understanding…” —Tim Page, author of Parallel Play

“Hugo Horiot refuses to allow his Autistic behaviors to control his life. Instead, he uses them to put himself in a position of power, triumphantly emerging from his violent, isolated world with only his mother’s help. An important read for the growing number of individuals with Autism who wish to live independent and purposeful lives.” —Suzanne Reek, President, The Autism Society of America, Nassau/Suffolk Chapter

“It’s a beautiful book, moving, fascinating, that grants us entry to a strange and sometimes frightening world…” —Brigitte Axelrad, Science et pseudo-sciences

“Truth glares from the pages, which we read with heart overflowing, sharing the experience of the boy trapped inside himself.” La Libre Belgique

“Equal parts love and pain, Hugo Horiot’s evocative account of his struggle with Autism Spectrum Disorder shares with us the penetrating insights of a tortured mind at odds with a society that does not accept him. In allowing the reader to enter the private world he retreated into as a child, Horiot forces us to reevaluate how we view those with psychological differences.” —Christopher Teare, Cognitive Training For Autism, Harvard University
