About this product
- DescriptionThis isn't a story about autism. It's a story about a young boy who happens to have autism, and there is a difference. John Williams is a stand-up comedian. He is also a single father and full-time carer for his son, who has autism and cerebral palsy. This is their incredible story. In 2012, John started a blog called My Son's Not Rainman, a heartfelt and uplifting account of everyday life for him and 'The Boy'. Following on from the blog's amazing success, John felt there was still much more of their life, past and present, that he wanted to share. And t only of the challenges of bringing up a child who for too long was just dismissed as 'difficult', but also of the joy of living with someone who looks at the world in a unique way. My Son's Not Rainman radiates warmth, care and passion, t to mention laugh-out-loud humour, on every page. It is a brilliantly different story about a brilliantly different boy.
- Author BiographyJohn Williams has had far too many jobs to list, ranging from working on the factory floor of a chicken processing plant to being a graphic designer for a City firm. He has worked as a comedian on and off for around twelve years, fitting it in around childcare. As a public speaker he has appeared at national conferences and events throughout the UK and Europe, and featured extensively on BBC Radio 4. My Son's Not Rainman is his first book, and you can find his blog at www.mysonsnotrainman.com. He is appalling at writing about himself in the third person, but is brilliant at dance-offs.
