“Gottlieb gifts us with the character of Todd Aaron, a middle-aged autistic man whose life in an institution takes a turn from a model of medically controlled routines he readily and ideally adapts to, to a year of disturbing changes with the arrivals of a volatile roommate, a cunning staff member, and a beguiling one-eyed girl, all who threaten his sense of equilibrium and reignite Todd's desire for the comforts of his original home. Tender and humorous memories linger well after reading this amazingly insightful story.”
— Mark Ingraham (E), Powell's Books, Inc, Portland, OR
