No Map to This Country
“Part of the torture of autism is that the future is so impossibly unsure. Your child might become a fully functioning member of society and appear no different than anyone else, even if he does have to look at mouths instead of eyes and can’t stand to give his own kids a bath. Or, he might be so violent that he requires institutionalization… Either way, you’re expected to work your ass off for it.”
With equal parts defiance, tenacity, and wry humor, No Map to This Country details one family’s journey through the modern autism epidemic, and the lengths to which a mother will go in order to heal her family. Noonan’s groundbreaking yet profoundly relatable memoir seamlessly combines cutting edge research with a gripping and unapologetic account of their fight for recovery.
