Summary
Look Me in the Eye is a moving and unexpectedly funny memoir of growing up with Asperger's syndrome (a form of high-functioning autism) at a time when the diagnosis didn't even exist. Along the way it also tells the story of two brothers born eight years apart yet devoted to each other: the author and his younger brother, who would grow up to become Augusten Burroughs, author of the bestselling Running with Scissors and who has contributed a beautiful foreword to this book. For anyone who loved The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, and of course Running with Scissors
Summary
The author describes life growing up different in an odd family, his unusual talents, his struggle to live a "normal" life, his diagnosis at the age of forty with Asperger's syndrome, and the dramatic changes that have occurred since that diagnosis
