Johnny is 19. He likes music, art and going to the beach. He is also autistic – he will probably never get a job, never have a girlfriend, never leave home. And over the last 18 years this is what his father, TV producer and comedy writer Henry Normal and his wife Angela have been trying to come to terms with. This is a book for anyone whose life has been touched by autism – it’s about the hope, the despair, and the messy, honest, sometimes hilarious day-to-day world of autism, as well as a wonderful, warm book about the unconditional, unconventional love between a father, a mother and a son.
