29 Sep A NORMAL FAMILY: My son, autism and me – 22 Mar 2018
Johnny is eighteen. He likes music, art and going to the beach. He is also severely autistic – he will never get a job, never have a girlfriend, never leave home. And over the last eighteen years this is what his father, TV producer and comedy writer Henry Normal has been trying to come to terms with.
This is a book for anyone whose life has been touched by autism – a collection of snapshots in the life of a boy, now a young man, and his father, who feels like he’s trying to communicate with someone from another planet. It’s about the hope, the despair, and the messy, honest, sometimes hilarious day-to-day world of autism, and it will be the go-to book for anyone faced with a daunting diagnosis, as well as a wonderful, warm book about the unconditional, unconventional love between a father and a son.
