The No. 1 Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller. 'It will stretch your vision of what it is to be human' Andrew Solomon, The Times Written by Naoki Higashida when he was only thirteen, this remarkable book provides a rare insight into the often baffling behaviour of autistic children. Using a question and answer format, Naoki explains things like why he talks loudly or repeats the same questions, what causes him to have panic attacks, and why he likes to jump. He also shows the way he thinks and feels about his world - other people, nature, time and beauty, and himself. Abundantly proving that people with autism do possess imagination, humour and empathy, he also makes clear how badly they need our compassion, patience and understanding. David Mitchell and his wife have translated Naoki's book so that it might help others dealing with autism and generally illuminate a little-understood condition. It gives us an exceptional chance to enter the mind of another and see the world from a strange and fascinating perspective. The book also features eleven original illustrations, inspired by Naoki's words, by the artistic duo Kai and Sunny.

The Reason I Jump: The Inner Voice of a Thirteen-Year-Old Boy with Autism by Naoki Higashida: Conversation Starters "To make myself understood, it's like I have to speak in an unknown foreign language, every minute, every day," Naoki Higashida explains. He honestly answers questions like: "Why do you repeat what others tell you? Why don't you look at people's eyes when you talk to them? Why are you always alone? Why do you talk so loudly? Why do you jump?" He says even if they don't appear to remember or learn from mistakes, they actually do, although they could really be slow in the process. Higashida's primary message in this book is for people not to give up on individuals like him. The Reason I Jump is a New York Times bestseller and is named one of the best books of the year by The Wall Street Journal, NPR, Bookish, and Bloomberg Business.

The Sunday Times bestseller Naoki Higashida met international success with THE REASON I JUMP, a revelatory account of life as a thirteen-year-old with non-verbal autism. Now he offers an equally illuminating insight into autism from his perspective as a young adult. In concise, engaging pieces, he shares his thoughts and feelings on a broad menu of topics ranging from school experiences to family relationships, the exhilaration of travel to the difficulties of speech. Aware of how mystifying his behaviour can appear to others, Higashida describes the effect on him of such commonplace things as a sudden change of plan, or the mental steps he has to take simply to register that it's raining. Throughout, his aim is to foster a better understanding of autism and to encourage those with disabilities to be seen as people, not as problems. With an introduction by David Mitchell, Fall Down Seven Times, Get Up Eight includes a dreamlike short story Higashida wrote for this edition. Both moving and of practical use, the book opens a window into the mind of an inspiring young man who meets the challenges of autism with tenacity and good humour. However often he falls down, he always gets back up.

'A wise SatNav for what is often a bewildering, or even scary, zone of parenting. The book offers real-world, road-tested, child-first and family-friendly advice; while also highlighting the twin truths that autism is not a tragedy, and that adaptation and acceptance are not resignation' David Mitchell, bestselling author and co-translator of The Reason I Jump 'A must-read for anyone with an autistic child in their life' Laura James, author of Odd Girl Out Written by Jessie Hewitson, an award-winning journalist at The Times, Autism is the book she wishes she had read when her son was first given the diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. It combines her own experiences with tips from autistic adults, other parents - including author David Mitchell - as well as advice from autism professionals and academics such as Professor Simon Baron-Cohen. Autism looks at the condition as a difference rather than a disorder and includes guidance on: · What to do if you think your child is autistic · How to understand and support your child at school and at home · Mental health and autism · The differences between autistic girls and boys 'It is incredibly useful and informative, full of new research and interviews that put right an awful lot of misinformation. I cannot recommend this highly enough' The Sun 'Exceptionally useful and informative' Uta Frith, Emeritus Professor of Cognitive Development, UCL

Das Böse lebt bis über den Tod hinaus... "Er kommt zu sich. Ein Tropfen trifft sein linkes Auge. Dann schießt Regen aus dem grauen Himmel. Er dreht den Kopf zur Seite, spuckt Schlamm und Kies aus, entdeckt ein Gesicht, wenige Meter entfernt. Haare kleben wie dünne Schlangen auf der Stirn. Aus dem Mundwinkel rinnt Wasser. Bleiche Haut, dreckverschmiert, geschlossene Augen. Es ist sein eigenes Gesicht!" Wasser ist der Ursprung alles Lebens, sagt man. Für Carl ist es nur eins: tödlich! Es war ein tragischer Unfall, sagt die Polizei. Carl soll mit seinem Bruder Rob und dessen Freundin Neisha am See gewesen sein. Jetzt ist Rob tot, Neisha hat panische Angst und Carls Gedächtnis ist wie ausgelöscht. Alles ist ihm fremd – seine Mutter, sein Zuhause, seine Sachen. Und obwohl jeder behauptet, dass die Brüder sich nahe gestanden haben: Carl empfindet keine Trauer. Dafür fühlt er sich zu Neisha hingezogen. Ist er ein gefühlskaltes Monster? Und wieso glaubt er, Robs Stimme zu hören, wenn der doch ertrunken ist? Ein düsterer Thriller, der unter die Haut geht - von Bestseller-Autorin Rachel Ward!

By the New York Times bestselling author of The Bone Clocks and Cloud Atlas A gallery attendant at the Hermitage. A young jazz buff in Tokyo. A crooked British lawyer in Hong Kong. A disc jockey in Manhattan. A physicist in Ireland. An elderly woman running a tea shack in rural China. A cult-controlled terrorist in Okinawa. A musician in London. A transmigrating spirit in Mongolia. What is the common thread of coincidence or destiny that connects the lives of these nine souls in nine far-flung countries, stretching across the globe from east to west? What pattern do their linked fates form through time and space? A writer of pyrotechnic virtuosity and profound compassion, a mind to which nothing human is alien, David Mitchell spins genres, cultures, and ideas like gossamer threads around and through these nine linked stories. Many forces bind these lives, but at root all involve the same universal longing for connection and transcendence, an axis of commonality that leads in two directions—to creation and to destruction. In the end, as lives converge with a fearful symmetry, Ghostwritten comes full circle, to a point at which a familiar idea—that whether the planet is vast or small is merely a matter of perspective—strikes home with the force of a new revelation. It marks the debut of a writer of astonishing gifts.
