Look Me in the Eye My Life With Aspergers
by Robison, John

ISBN: 9781863256414
PUBLISHER: Bantam
FORMAT: Paperback
PAGES: 288
PUBLICATION DATE: 2008


DESCRIPTION:
LOOK ME IN THE EYE tells of a child's heartbreaking desperation to connect with others, and his struggle to pass as 'normal' By the time he was a teenager, John Elder Robison's odd habits -- such as a tendency to obsessively dismantle radios and dig five-foot holes (and stick his little brother in them) -- had earned him the label 'social deviant'. No guidance came from his mother, who conversed with light fixtures, or his father, who spent the evenings drinking. Small wonder Robison gravitated to machines, which could, at least, be counted on. It was not until he was forty that an insightful therapist told Robison he had the form of autism called Asperger's syndrome, transforming the way Robison saw himself -- and the world. He also provides a fascinating angle on the younger brother he left at the mercy of their nutty parents -- the boy who would grow up to write RUNNING WITH SCISSORS. Above all, you'll marvel at the way Robison overcame the restrictions of Asperger's to gain the connection he always craved: as a husband and father.
