Ron Suskind is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and a bestselling author (Confidence Men; The One Percent Doctrine), but he is also the father of a 20-year-old autistic son. The writer and his wife were understandably shocked when at the age of three, Owen suddenly lost his ability to communicate. As they searched for solutions, they noticed that their son was immersed in Disney animated films. After that chance discovery, it didn't take long for them to realize that Owen's transactions with the world were being conducted through the medium of these movies. To reach him, Ron and his wife needed to enter this symbolic world of magical creatures and enchanted forests. This unforgettable memoir, which is enhanced by its own Disney artistry, carries enchantments of its own. Editor's recommendation.
