Keith Stuart

Meet thirtysomething dad, Alex. He loves his wife Jody, but has forgotten how to show it. He loves his son Sam, but doesn't understand him. Something has to change. And he needs to start with himself. Meet eight-year-old Sam. Beautiful, surprising, autistic. To him the world is a puzzle he can't solve on his own. When Sam starts to play Minecraft, it opens up a place where Alex and Sam begin to rediscover both themselves and each other ...When life starts to tear one family apart, can they put themselves back together, one piece at a time?

One of the most original and absorbing novels we’ve read this year. Keith Stuart draws on his extraordinary experiences with his own autistic son to produce a deeply moving, very funny, and utterly gripping story. If you don’t enjoy it, we’ll buy hats and eat them.
