‘In a Different Key: The Story of Autism,’ by John Donvan and Caren ZuckerPosted: March 9, 2016
‘In a Different Key: The Story of Autism,’ by John Donvan and Caren Zucker is a new book that tells the story of Donald Triplett of Forest, Mississippi who became the first child diagnosed with autism nearly seventy-five years ago.
“Magnificent…Spellbinding—a fable about greed, power and betrayal told through the lens of autism…Chock-full of suspense and hairpin turns…This book does what no other on autism has done: capture all the slippery, bewildering and deceptive aspects…I have been the mother of an autistic son since 1988…I wept and laughed and raged while reading In a Different Key, all the while thinking, Yes! This is my experience, including the raw and dirty parts, but also the wonder and joy.” –Ann Bauer, Washington Post
