About the Author

Mike Cavanagh is now in his sixties and has no idea how he got here. He lives with his wife, Julie, and two black cats in Bateman’s Bay, NSW. The house they live in is quirky and in need of regular maintenance, as are its owners. Mike writes poetry, plays guitar and composes music, is doing a PhD in Zoology, and spends far too much time playing computer role playing games. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars This unusual memoir is surprisingly easy to enjoy.
By RONALD MACKAY on August 26, 2020
Mike Cavanagh’s memoir exceeds the promise of its title in that it elucidates and elaborates upon, if not explains, the inexplicable.

When you play rugby league but find the “whole team thing a troubling blur”; when your girlfriend tells you that you have “no real sense of compassion”; and when your mother warns you to “be careful the next time you fall out of” an upper-story window, you may just get an inkling that you’re not quite like other people.

“One of its Legs are Both the Same” is the author’s successful attempt to recover a period of his life when he was aware that he was not quite like others without knowing why or even caring very much.

The author “did his own thing” then. Now, drawing on a photographic memory, he does his own thing again as a way of coming to terms with a diagnosis of Adult Asperger’s Syndrome. His fortunate memory is matched by an equally fortunate ability to write in such a way as to draw the reader right into his unusual life as a teenager and young adult.

While life, for Mike Cavanagh may not have been easy, for the reader, this memoir is surprisingly easy to enjoy.
