LOOK ME IN THE EYE My Life with Asperger's

by | Read by John Elder Robison

Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2007

Fans of Augusten Burroughs (RUNNING WITH SCISSORS) will enjoy this memoir by his older brother. Narrated by the author, the story conveys with equal measures of humor and pathos the difficulty in growing up with Asperger's--particularly as there was no diagnosis for the syndrome during Robison's childhood. His difficulties and his insights into overcoming them make for a compelling story. Robison makes lemonade from what initially seems like lemons, and, from working on rocket-launching guitars for KISS to owning his own business, his story is unique and compelling. His speech idiosyncrasies would likely hinder the story were they not perfectly suited to the nature of his story. In this case, he's the perfect narrator for a truly original memoir.
