Thoughtfully and beautifully written, this sequel to Running with Walker offers an important portrayal of adult life with low-functioning autism and the associated challenges
Robert Hughes is the author of Running with Walker: A Memoir, also published by JKP. His articles have appeared in Newsweek, the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Sun-Times, Parents Magazine, and Chicago Magazine, and he has contributed commentary to WBEZ, Chicago Public Radio. He holds a Ph.D. in English literature from Northwestern University and taught writing at Truman College, City Colleges of Chicago. He lives with his family in Chicago.
In this honest to the bone, mesmerizing memoir about life with an adult autistic son, Robert Hughes exposes the wretched reality that typically faces special needs adults and their loved ones. But beneath the surface of outrage toward a society that does so little for our most vulnerable people, Hughes graciously elevates the good in the human spirit each time he finds it. Ultimately, this is a story of a family's determination to use their eccentricities, wit, optimism, wisdom, and love for each other, to thwart a broken system that dared to challenge Walker's right to live happy and well. -- Liane Holliday Willey, author of Pretending to be Normal: Living with Asperger's Syndrome and Safety Skills for Asperger Women: How to Save a Perfectly Good Female Life
