"A father's candid, heart-wrenching account of raising, loving and trying to connect with and gain insight into his severely disabled son...Much more than a moving journal of life with a disabled child; it is about Brown's quest to understand his son and his son's condition...An absorbing, revealing work of startling frankness."--"Kirkus Reviews""" "The truth Brown learns from his severely disabled child is a rare one: The life that seems to destroy you is the one you long to embrace."--"New York Times Book Review ""Unforgettable...Crisp, observant and, occasionally, subversively funny...In the end, as in the beginning, Brown questions the value of a life like Walker's, "lived in the twilight and often in pain." He sometimes locates it in Walker himself. Another answer is this book."--"Cleveland Plain Dealer"" ""Honest and deeply moving."--"Tucson Citizen"
