Descrizione

Recommended reading by the National Mental Health Association. To his mother, twelve-year-old Benjamin Sherman is an object of pity and anxiety. To his father, he is bizarre and embarrassing. To his psychiatrist, he is a case study in mental illness. To the counselors at the camp where he is spending his summer, Benjamin is a ';freaky kid' who shuns his peers and is strangelyand perhaps dangerouslyattached to his best friend, Elliot, a stuffed letter H. Through the letters of his sister, mother, father, camp counselors, and psychiatristand, most touchingly, through those Benjamin writes to Elliotthis audacious and utterly unsentimental novel gives us a moving and sometimes shocking intimacy with a child whose disorder may be a kind of fragile genius. H is an astute, sympathetic evocation of the state we persist in calling ';madness.' ';A new and mind-boggling perspective on mental illness from the point of view of the sufferer and those who would love and care about him. H is a very poignant, enthralling debut.'The Boston Globe ';Shepard is a reverse archaeologist, designing a tiny contemporary lost world for readers to excavate. Everything mattersShepard gets everything right.'New York Magazine
