Out of Silence: An Autistic Boy’s Journey into Language and Communication

by Henry Holt

“A deeply moving rendering of human beings in adversity…Other accounts of the suffering of autism have been published, but few can vie with this one for thoughtfulness, scholarship, and personal accent.” – New York Times Book Review

“A wholly remarkable book…Martin leaves us with a deeper understanding of language itself, a richer appreciation of its promise, and a realization that the ability to communicate is a kind of grace.” – Los Angeles Times

“From time to time a special book is written that changes one’s way of perceiving the self and the world, and that challenges one to rethink what being human really means. Russell Martin has written such a book…It is a book that should become a classic.” – Bloomsbury Review
