What's Hot!

Best Boy

Eli Gottlieb

Sent to a "therapeutic community" for autism at the age of eleven, Todd Aaron, now in his fifties, has spent most of his life at Payton Living Center. A joyous man who rereads the encyclopedia compulsively, Todd's life is thrown into disarray by the arrival of both a new roommate and a menacing new staffer. His equilibrium is further worsened by Martine, a new resident who takes a romantic interest in Todd and encourages him to go off his meds to feel "normal" again. Undone by these pressures, Todd attempts an escape to return "home" to his younger brother and to a childhood that now inhabits only his dreams. A deeply moving portrayal of autism from the author of The Face Thief (2012).
