By Marc William Pulver
with Robert Shostak
Dog Ear Publishing,
Indianapolis, IN 2012
This is a brave and rambunctious book written by a middle--aged autistic man who simply wanted to write his story in book form. He approached his cousin Robert Shostak to help him. After a few troubled starts he over time sent 60,000 words to Shostak for editing help.
With gentle editing, preserving Pulver's style and cadence and making needed spelling and punctuation this book is a reality. Reading the story one is moved by cherished parents who could have shoved Marc into an institution but kept him home. Behavior problems, outbursts of anger and scattered emotions were borne with patience, love and caring by Marc and his parents. Learning difficulties, school behavior difficulties and along with some athletic prowess all bundled into a boy and a teen who was clearly different from the other kids.
Marc writes of his attempts to live alone, have a love life and work life with naïve humor and a determination to be independent.
This is a wonderful book for clergy, teachers, doctors. parents and autistic readers to get a moving and accurate picture of people with autism and of Marc living his life to the fullest
The Rev. Robert Warren Cromey is an
Episcopal Priest, retired and living in San Francisco.
In straight-forward words, Marc brings his message of love to those who sometimes are lost in the shock of autism. He brings hope to those who may need a hand of friendship. He brings understanding to those who may be in fear. Some people lead, some follow. Out of the fog of such confusion about the condition, Marc has set his course to be a leader among his fellows and show them the way to successful, fulfilled lives. The book is splendidly written-- pokes you right in the heart and makes you look at the lives of so many you know in a completely different way. You will hear a lot about and from Marc in the future. He is articulate and determined to shine his substantial light on a fearful subject. Our world will be much better off.
