Not Even Wrong: Adventures in Autism

When Paul Collins's son Morgan was two years old, he could read, spell, and perform multiplication tables in his head...but not answer to his own name. A casual conversation-or any social interaction that the rest of us take for granted-will, for Morgan, always be a cryptogram that must be painstakingly decoded. He lives in a world of his own: an autistic world.
In Not Even Wrong, Paul Collins melds a memoir of his son's autism with a journey into this realm of permanent outsiders. Examining forgotten geniuses and obscure medical archives, Collins's travels take him from an English churchyard to the Seattle labs of Microsoft, and from a Wisconsin prison cell block to the streets of Vienna. It is a story that reaches from a lonely clearing in the Black Forest into the London palace of King George I, from Defoe and Swift to the discovery of evolution; from the modern dawn of the computer revolution to, in the end, the author's own household.

Crazy Love: A Traumedy about Life with Autism

The day that Macy's store security informed the author that her five year old daughter was boarding a crowded elevator, dragging a naked mannequin by his head, leaving behind a trail of plaster limbs and fine menswear, was the day absurdism became the new world order in the Walter household. Autism isn't funny. Yet, sometimes laughter rises feebly out of the ashes of tragedy, a little befuddled and slightly singed, like a hungover phoenix after mardi gras. Crazy Love: a Traumedy About Life with Autism, is a collection of fragments from the life of a little girl, that smokes out the farcical humor with saucy candor. Fresh as roadkill, from a mother caught in the twin headlights of reality and insanity, Crazy Love captures the dark humor that careens out of control when autism is at the wheel.

The Spark: A Mother's Story of Nurturing, Genius, and Autism

Kristine Barnett’s son Jacob has an IQ higher than Einstein’s, a photographic memory, and he taught himself calculus in two weeks. At nine he started working on an original theory in astrophysics that experts believe may someday put him in line for a Nobel Prize, and at age twelve he became a paid researcher in quantum physics. But the story of Kristine’s journey with Jake is all the more remarkable because his extraordinary mind was almost lost to autism. At age two, when Jake was diagnosed, Kristine was told he might never be able to tie his own shoes.
The Spark is a remarkable memoir of mother and son. Surrounded by “experts” at home and in special ed who tried to focus on Jake’s most basic skills and curtail his distracting interests—moving shadows on the wall, stars, plaid patterns on sofa fabric—Jake made no progress, withdrew more and more into his own world, and eventually stopped talking completely. Kristine knew in her heart that she had to make a change.

Behind the Pictures

By my own definition, ""Autism is where the 'randomness of life,' collides and clashes with an individual's need for sameness.""
The conflict of two cultures living side by side in the same household created a struggle to gain control over of the environment, the ensuing chaos deconstructed our family unit. There was so much more to the story of The Girl Who Spoke With Pictures, that I needed to write a companion book to more fully complete the setting of our family, our journey of autism and the strategies that we used for change.
