Content descriptions

General Note:
Includes Reader's guide with a postscript and interview by David Mitchell.
Originally published in Japan in Japanese [自閉症の僕が跳びはねる理由 : 会話のできない中学生がつづる内なる心] by Escor Publishers Ltd., in 2007. --- From title page verso.
Written by Naoki Higashida, a very smart, very self-aware, and very charming thirteen-year-old boy with autism, it 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. Using an alphabet grid to painstakingly construct words, sentences, and thoughts that he is unable to speak out loud, Naoki answers even the most delicate questions that people want to know.
