  • And You Can Love Me

    Date: 2019.04.01 | Category: Book Reviews | Response: 0

    a story for everyone who loves someone with ASD

     

    “As a mother and grandmother, this story speaks to me about the power of unconditional love we bring to any situation. This book is an excellent resource for adults who have a child or grandchild with autism. It acknowledges the different ways my loved one with autism may communicate and reminds me that we love completely. As a former special education teacher, this story gives me words to be able to keep sharing with people about the wonderful diversity that we see in the world. Everyone has gifts.”
    Deb Holtz is a former special education teacher, a current end-of-life doula, and a mother and grandmother.

    “In You Can Love Me, Sherry Lee gives us the world of Ethan, a little boy with autism. Although Ethan is mute, his daily routine of bouncing a ball and expressing his needs, as well as his interior life are revealed through simple sketches and lovely lines like Today I am another year of being me. A welcome and wonderful addition to the as-yet-tiny body of work about children with autism, You Can Love Me is a beautiful, profoundly moving book.”
    –Alison McGhee, New York Times bestselling author of many books for children and adults.

    What’s it like to be seventy?  2018, for me, was a year of introspection.  Check out my thoughts on Midwest Mixed:

    “If my house were burning down, I would grab artwork, my book, and the notebooks I wrote

    in Anya’s classes. If you’re looking for an average writing teacher or editor, go elsewhere.

    Anya resides in the upper stratosphere of creativity and, if you let her,

    will lift your writing to heights you never dreamed possible.

    I won the 2006 New Mexico Discovery Award, first prize in non-fiction,

    for a story I began in Anya’s class. I divide my writing into two phases:

    pre-Anya and post-Anya. There is no comparison.”–Amy Fisher

    “Crazy” essay by Chris Stark:  How Dare We! Write, edited by Sherry Quan Lee

    Chris Stark’s memoir essay addresses how viewing as “crazy” the
    ideas, experiences, and foundations of writing outside of the
    whitemalenorm limits, silences, and marginalizes many writers of
    color. Stark discusses how her first novel, Nickels: A Tale of
    Dissociation, breaks down sentence structure, punctuation, language,
    and style to authentically convey the intersectionality of the protagonist’s
    multiple marginalized identities.

    Acclaim for NICKLES, Chris Stark, Modern History Press

    “Christine Stark has crafted a language and a diction commensurate with the shredding of consciousness that is a consequence of childhood sexual abuse. She brings us a wholly original voice in a riveting novel of desperation and love. Nickels is narrated by Miss So And So, as her mother names her, from the ages of 4 to 26, a character so compelling I never wanted to stop hearing from her. She names herself crazy girl, but the reader sees a different truth: there’s humor and cunning and ferocious love alive in those who survive. Stark enables the reader to inhabit the intricacy and chaos of this potent inner landscape, and we have not seen this before. Every sentence vibrates with a terrible beauty. Every sentence brings the news.”

    —Patricia Weaver Francisco, author of  Telling: A Memoir of Rape and Recovery
