內容簡介

單親父親與自閉症男孩的一萬次日常冒險,感受最暖心、誠摯且振奮人心的勵志小品

John Williams是一位獨立喜劇演員,同時也是全職的單親父親。他12歲大的兒子是一位自閉症及腦性麻痺患者,這是一本關於他們結合歡笑與淚水的奮鬥人生旅程。

患有自閉症的12歲男孩不像電影《雨人》(Rain Man)的主角一樣有超凡的才能,他唯一的特殊天賦就是讓他的父親開心。John從2012年就在他的部落格上開始記載他與兒子生活的各種大小事,他不分享身為自閉症兒父母的難處與艱辛,相反地他分享的都是正面及與兒子相處的各種快樂時光。這不是一個探討自閉症的故事,而是一段敘說一位男孩恰好得了自閉症的小品故事。John透過與兒子相處的時光,體會到自閉兒看待世界的獨特角度,透過有趣與溫暖的文字,展現他對兒子的愛與照顧。

Heartfelt, funny, and ultimately uplifting, one father discusses the life of a single dad raising a son who just so happens to have autism

My Son's Not Rainman is a heartfelt and uplifting account of everyday events in the life of John and his son (The Boy). The Boy is 12 years old and autistic. He isn't a genius. His only special power is making his dad laugh. A lot. Following the success of the blog of the same name, John talks not just about the difficulties of having a child who is considered "different" but also the joy of living with someone who looks at the world in a unique way. This isn't a story about autism. It's a story about a young boy who happens to have autism, and there is a big difference. It does relate the struggles of getting a diagnosis for The Boy and the dismay of having his child excluded from schools. However, John very rarely dwells on the downside of his son's condition, preferring instead to look at the happiness and insight his son has given him. Funny and heart-warming, this is a book about living with the often frustrating and bewildering, but always fascinating, world of the autistic mind. It's about finding the positive in everything, from the joy and wonder of the Special School Disco to the unadulterated thrill of getting the front seat on the Docklands Light Railway. Ultimately, it's a celebration of what it really means to be different.
