Publisher's Summary

Through a candid narrative, parents describe the surreal experience of having twin sons with severe autism. Valerie Hall's episodic text chronicles Jack's and James' condition as it transforms family life and poses ominous implications for the future. Her reactions to her own life in a world where autism makes the rules are candid and unfiltered. She rejects the tropes of most autism literature, spurning both memoir and how-to prescriptions. Instead she invites you to encounter Jack and James as she does, as boys who are both beautiful and broken. The day-to-dayness of her account has the disturbing effect of allowing the listener to step into a world where expectations are upended and encounters take on an aura of the surreal. The audiobook includes the narrative of the book; photographs (by Bruce Hall) are available to view on the Visual Summit website.
