reading. [#7]

the boy and the moon - 'for eleven years, writer ian brown and his family have dealt with an unexpected presence - his son walker, born with a rare and complex disorder, cfc, which makes life very disorderly, indeed. unable to communicate or even to eat on his own, mentally delayed, fragile, sickly, sometimes destructive, sometimes joyful, walker is a mystery made possible by modern medicine. in this remarkably frank and intimate story, brown describes his struggle to care for and to understand his son - and through him the value of any human life.'
