NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER ?As sweet and funny and sad and true and heartfelt a memoir as one could find.? from the foreword by Augusten Burroughs Ever since he was young, John Robison longed to connect with other people, but by the time he... was a teenager, his odd habits an inclination to blurt out non sequiturs, avoid eye contact, dismantle radios, and dig five-foot holes (and stick his younger brother, Augusten Burroughs, in them) had earned him the label ?social deviant.? It was not until he was forty that he was diagnosed with a form of autism called Asperger s syndrome. That understanding transformed the way he saw himself and the world. A born storyteller, Robison has written a moving, darkly funny memoir about a life that has taken him from developing exploding guitars for KISS to building a family of his own. It s a strange, sly, indelible account sometimes alien yet always deeply human.
