In his 2007 bestseller Look Me in the Eye, John Elder Robison wrote about his experiences growing up and living with Asperger's. In Raising Cubby, he writes about his experiences raising a son who shares the condition. By turns funny, moving, and surprising, this memoir touches on both Robison's peculiar parenting techniques and Cubby's unconventional preoccupations. Of the latter, his son's penchant for creating high explosives is clearly the most dangerous, bringing him to the brink of a lengthy prison term. With that penal prospect looming, the author's sense of responsibility snaps fully into focus: This, we clearly realize, is the story of a man and a young man navigating their way through a world that cannot fully understand them and that they themselves have only imperfectly mastered.
