A story of endurance against the odds. There is a dearth of literature by disabled, working-class authors. This is the account of an autistic author, though one gifted with literary ability. Lucien Bracquemont is eager to share his story, to help others understand the realities and issues facing those on the autistic spectrum, and to provide a voice for others on the spectrum. He has had much contact with the mentally and otherwise challenged members of the community. This work is emotionally charged in places and transparent, with a message of hope and understanding.
About the author:
Lucien Bracquemont of Maine is a 60-year-old workingclass individual with Asperger’s Syndrome (on the autistic spectrum) who has survived not only emotional and mental abuse and disabilities but cancer at age 41 as well. He has a bachelor’s degree in Philosophy and two years of theological training. His current job and relationships bring him into constant contact with emotionally and mentally challenged individuals. He credits his girlfriend, Katherine, of nineteen years as well as other significant factors for his surviving and thriving. Bracquemont is a survivor, not a victim.
