Hugo Horiot was an angry autistic child with Asperger syndrome who refused to speak for the first years of his life and only escaped institutionalisation because his mother decided, controversially, to educate and care for him herself. Today, the storm of autism has passed and Hugo has become a peaceful and highly functioning adult. In this book, he now returns to his childhood, to his experiences, his tantrums, obsessions, furies, and to give a voice to a child who had cut himself off from the world. This is a true story, a literary and startling testimony.
