內容簡介



國際暢銷書《我想變成鳥,所以跳起來:在自閉兒的世界裡,理解是最適當的陪伴》作者東田直樹新作!

即使跌倒了,他一定會再次站起來。

★ 由英國重量級作家大衛.米契爾撰寫序言

患有重度自閉症的東田直樹,十三歲時出版《我想變成鳥,所以跳起來》,紀錄其內心想法與心聲,不僅解開人們對於自閉症患者的疑惑,也讓讀者更加了解他們的心理。

現年二十四歲的東田直樹,記錄他如何以堅毅的態度與幽默感,面對充滿挑戰的每一天,不管是學生時代的回憶、與家人的關係、旅遊的愉悅、或言語的困難。藉由他的視角,讀者將會看見我們視為理所當然的日常,對他而言卻十分艱難。他深知自己的行為在他人眼中可能顯得非常古怪,因此期望透過本書的紀錄,讓人們對於自閉症有更深刻的理解,也鼓勵社會將身心障礙者視為人看待,而不是問題。

本書收錄他專為英文版撰寫的短篇小說〈A Journey〉,由英國重量級作家大衛.米契爾與妻子KA Yoshida擔任英譯版翻譯,他們的孩子也患有自閉症,也因此深知與自閉兒的相處與溝通的困難之處。本書探討的議題從身分、家庭、教育、社會到自我成長,由短篇文章、訪談、詩作與一篇短篇小說組成,以半自傳的性質探索自我的各個面向,讓讀者深入了解年輕自閉症患者的心理,進入先前不熟悉的世界。

From the author of the bestselling The Reason I Jump, an extraordinary self-portrait of life as a young adult with autism
 
Naoki Higashida was only thirteen when he wrote The Reason I Jump, a revelatory account of autism from the inside by a nonverbal Japanese child, which became an international success.
 
Now he shares his thoughts and experiences as a twenty-four-year-old man living each day with severe autism. In short, powerful chapters, he explores school memories, family relationships, the exhilaration of travel, and the difficulties of speech. He also allows readers to experience profound moments we take for granted, like the thought-steps necessary for him to register that it’s raining outside. Acutely aware of how strange his behavior can appear to others, he aims throughout to foster a better understanding of autism and to encourage society to see people with disabilities as people, not as problems.
 
With an introduction by bestselling novelist David Mitchell, Fall Down 7 Times Get Up 8 includes a dreamlike short story Higashida wrote especially for this edition. Both moving and of practical use, this book opens a window into the mind of an inspiring young man who meets every challenge with tenacity and good humor. However often he falls down, he always gets back up.
