New York Times bestselling author Steve Silberman on THE EAGLE TREE

"The Eagle Tree is a gorgeously written novel that features one of the most accurate, finely drawn and memorable autistic protagonists in literature. The hero of the book is like a 14-year-old Walt Whitman with autism, seeking communion with the ancient magnificent beings that tower over the landscape around Olympia, Washington. Ned Hayes plays with the conventions of the unreliable narrator so that you end up feeling like March is a very reliable narrator of glorious and terrifying aspects of the world that neurotypicals can’t see. Credible, authentic, powerful. A must-read.”

– Steve Silberman, author of NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity, winner of the Samuel Johnson Prize for non-fiction.

Everyday Aspergers

BOOK REVIEW:

 

"Everyday Aspergers is an unusual and powerful exploration of one woman's marvelously lived life. Reminiscent of the best of Anne Lamott, Everyday Aspergers jumps back and forth in time through a series of interlocking vignettes that give insight and context to her lived experience as an autistic woman. The humor and light touch is disarming, because underneath the light observations and quirky moments are buried deep truths about the human experience and about her own work as an autistic woman discerning how to live her best life. From learning how to make eye contact to finding ways to communicate her needs to being a dyslexic cheerleader and a fraught mother of also-autistic boys, Samantha Craft gives us a marvelous spectrum of experiences. Highly recommended for everyone to read -- especially those who love people who are just a little different.”

 

(I write this as someone who loves people who are not just average -- my novel The Eagle Tree is about just such a person.)

 

The new book by Olympia-based Samantha Craft ( @aspergersgirls ) is EVERYDAY ASPERGERS and I highly recommend this book as a great set of vignettes about life on the spectrum #actuallyautistic http://amzn.to/2a9XzX9

Book quote from The Eagle Tree:

"Each tree hears signals from an unseen internal time system... perhaps even from the stars... Then the tree renews its conquest of the air every spring."

Book Quote:

 

"The trees that I have not climbed give me a hollow feeling in my throat. It is a tangy, metallic taste, a hunger inside."
