Description
Cuando, con trece años, Naoki Higashida empezó a comunicarse a través de una parrilla de ideogramas diseñada por su madre, estaba haciendo historia. Nunca antes un niño aquejado de un grado de autismo tan severo había conseguido transmitir, comunicarse, expresarse. Si bien las consideradas condiciones del espectro autista no son nunca exactamente iguales en dos personas, sí que comparten un rasgo: en mayor o menor medida, afectan su capacidad de comunicación e interrelación con los demás. Naoki consigue traducir su experiencia a un lenguaje comprensible para cualquier lector a través de preguntas como: ¿por qué los autistas habláis tan alto y tan raro?; ¿por qué os gusta poner vuestros coches de juguete en fila y ordenar todos los bloques de los juegos de construcción?; ¿por qué saltas? Sus respuestas son optimistas y transmiten alegría de vivir, ternura y, sobre todo, nos presentan a alguien admirable de quien hay mucho que aprender.
Description
Written by a very smart, very self-aware, and very charming thirteen-year-old boy with autism, this is a one-of-a-kind memoir that demonstrates how an autistic mind thinks, feels, perceives, and responds in ways few of us can imagine. Parents and family members who never thought they could get inside the head of their autistic loved one at last have a way to break through to the curious, subtle, and complex life within. With disarming honesty and a generous heart, Naoki shares his unique point of view on not only autism but life itself. His insights--into the mystery of words, the wonders of laughter, and the elusiveness of memory--are so startling, so strange, and so powerful that you will never look at the world the same way again. In his introduction, bestselling novelist David Mitchell writes that Naoki's words allowed him to feel, for the first time, as if his own autistic child was explaining what was happening in his mind. This translation was a labor of love by David and his wife, KA Yoshida, so they'd be able to share that feeling with friends, the wider autism community, and beyond.--From publisher description.
