Since the time he was three or four years old, Elder Robison realized that he was different from other people.He was unable to make eye contact or connect with other children, and by the time he was a teenager, his strange habits – a tendency to let unsequiturs escape, obsessively, to dismantle radios or dig five feet of holes (and his younger brother’s stick) – earned him the “social deviance” label.He did not help his mother conversational with lights and that his father spent evenings stripping himself in sherry casks.Watching Me in the Eye is her story of growing up with Asperger’s Syndrome, a form of autism – at a time when the diagnosis simply didn’t exist.Along the way he also tells the story of two brothers born eight years apart, but devoted to each other: the author and his younger brother Chris, who grew up to become a best-selling author Augustin Burroughs.This book is one of the rare fusion of inspiration, black comedy and a better understanding of how the human mind works.For someone who has struggled all his life to connect with other people, Robison, turns out to be an extraordinary storyteller.
