Editorial Reviews


There are books written about families, and there are books written about autism, and in 'Ketchup is My Favorite Vegetable,' author Liane Kupferberg Carter seamlessly weaves the two together to create a beautiful and heart-tugging story that will stay with you for a long time. In its purest sense, this is a love story--about two parents and the love they share for each other and for their sons, one of whom has autism. -- Better After 50 Magazine

Carter doesn't sugarcoat the anxiety, frustrationand pain.... But in choosing to operate from a place ofhope and strength, she is able to not just navigate Mickey's needs, but embraceeach moment and develop his potential for the future. The result is a deeplymoving and inspiring look at a mother's love beyond fear. -- Patty Chang Anker, Psychology Today

"If you've met one person with autism, you've met oneperson with autism." Bestquote ever. I learned it from Liane Kupferberg Carter's latest memoir, Ketchup is my Favorite Vegetable: A FamilyGrows up with Autism. This quote isn't just emblematic of hermessage, it also exemplifies the kind of thoughtful writing that Carter is amaster of. Let's face it: family life is filled with so many emotions. Onthe surface, it may seem like it's a steady stream of equal parts challenge andthe quotidian, but if you stop to think about it mindfully it is punctuatedwith moments of joy and love. Carter is a skilled writer who knows just how toweave the right amount of thoughtful research with the ups and downs of what ittakes to raise an autistic child, while also seeing to everyone else's needs,including her own.  
-- Maribel Garcia, Book Club Babble 

This book beautifully captures the struggle and joy of having an autistic child. -- American Society of Journalists and Authors
