No. 1 in the Sunday Times and the New York Times best-sellerWritten by Naoki Higashida when he was only thirteen years old, this remarkable work offers a rare glimpse of the often disconcerting behavior of autistic children.Using a list of questions and answers, Naoki explains things as why he speaks loudly or repeats the same questions, which leads to panic attacks, and why he likes to jump.He also shows how he thinks and feels about his world – other people, nature, time and beauty, and himself.Abundantly proving that people with autism do not have imagination, humour and empathy, it is also clear how much they need our compassion, patience and understanding.David Mitchell and his wife translated Naoki from the book so that he could help others who deal with autism and generally shed some light on the state.It gives us an exceptional opportunity to grasp the spirit of another and see the world from a strange and fascinating perspective.The book also includes eleven original illustrations, inspired by Naoki les mots, the artistic duo Kai and Ensoleillé.
