I’ve been reading books about damaged children, drawn by the question of how you make your way through your life when some critical part of you was damaged early.
c’est une longue histoire
destiné à exprimer
faits du mal à comprendre
douleurs à part entière à descirbe
At Last, by Edward St. Aubyn.
Send in the Idiots, a story of partly autistic children most of whom manage to make their way in the world.
Jeannette Winterson’s memoir, a woman so radically unloved by her adopted mother,
Father’s Day by Buzz Bissinger, the story of a retarded savant child.
