pourquoi le reste du monde, lui, ne saute pas du même élan du coeur » — Josef Schovanec
Pour los angeles première fois, un enfant atteint d’autisme sévère nous raconte l’autisme de l’intérieur. Il répond aux questions que les mom and dad se posent :
Pourquoi fuis-tu le touch visuel ?
Est-il vrai que tu détestes qu’on te touche ?
Pourquoi répètes-tu los angeles même query sans arrêt ?
Pourquoi sautes-tu en tapant des mains ?, and so on.
David Mitchell, l’un des meilleurs écrivains anglais de sa génération et père d’un enfant autiste, a découvert ce texte qui fut pour lui une révélation, une sorte de Scaphandre et le Papillon de l’autisme : « J’ai ecu l’impression, pour l. a. première fois, que notre fils nous racontait ce qui se passait dans sa tête. »
Il a décidé de le traduire du japonais avec sa femme KA Yoshida : « Ce livre est bien plus qu’une somme d’informations, il apporte los angeles preuve qu’il y a, emprisonné à l’intérieur du corps autistique, apparemment impuissant, un esprit aussi curieux, subtil et complexe que le vôtre, le mien, celui de n’importe qui. »
Naoki a appris à communiquer grâce à une grille alphabétique. Il a écrit ce livre à thirteen ans et l’a d’abord publié through web. Il a aujourd’hui 22 ans et verbal exchange toujours grâce à son clavier. Il vit à Kimitsu et tient un blog.
