Diagsed with severe autism as a toddler, Seth Chwast seemed trapped in his own insular universe. His family endured anguish, sought countless therapies and almost gave up hope. Then, at age 20, Seth took a painting class and everything changed. Miraculously, he revealed an innate ability to create amazing artworks that reflect his own unique perspective and gave him a voice he had never had. Written by Seth's mother, Debra, An Unexpected Life tells the story of their long difficult path and her determination to help her son. Although Seth cant safely cross the street alone, he is an icon for anyone who has been in a hopeless situation and then triumphs. More than simply a memoir, this visually breathtaking volume is infused with hope, inspiration and art.
