內容簡介


《我想要變成鳥,所以跳起來》作者東田直樹再次突破語言交流障礙,推出新作!

自閉症是因為腦部發育障礙產生疾病,最明顯的病徵有語言和非語言的溝通障礙,或者重覆某句話或者動作。自閉症患者外表也許與一般人無異,但因無法與外界順利溝通,加上一些特定行為,他們常被視為是「奇怪的人」。

東田直樹是重度自閉症患者,無法順利使用言語溝通的東田,習慣用文字和它人交流。在十九歲那年發表了《我想要變成鳥,所以跳起來》,以自身經驗分享了自閉症患者對外界的看法,感動了全世界的讀者。

滿二十四歲的東田,以成年後的所見所聞,再次發表本書,從上學的經驗到和家人的關係、出去旅行的喜悅,還有無法用言語溝通的辛苦。

東田知道其它人對於自己的行為可能會感到怪異,因此說明這些許多人認為稀鬆平常的事情,對他來說會有怎樣的影響,希望藉由自己的故事,讓更多人了解自病症患者的生活。

本書由《雲圖》作者大衛‧米契和日裔妻子一起翻譯,東田也為英文版另外寫了一篇短篇故事,曾經受到東田故事感動的讀者,以及想要了解自病症的讀者,本書將給你看世界的另一種角度。


The Sunday Times bestseller

Naoki Higashida met international success with THE REASON I JUMP, a revelatory account of life as a thirteen-year-old with non-verbal autism. Now he offers an equally illuminating insight into autism from his perspective as a young adult. In concise, engaging pieces, he shares his thoughts and feelings on a broad menu of topics ranging from school experiences to family relationships, the exhilaration of travel to the difficulties of speech. Aware of how mystifying his behaviour can appear to others, Higashida describes the effect on him of such commonplace things as a sudden change of plan, or the mental steps he has to take simply to register that it's raining. Throughout, his aim is to foster a better understanding of autism and to encourage those with disabilities to be seen as people, not as problems.

With an introduction by David Mitchell, Fall Down Seven Times, Get Up Eight includes a dreamlike short story Higashida wrote for this edition. Both moving and of practical use, the book opens a window into the mind of an inspiring young man who meets the challenges of autism with tenacity and good humour. However often he falls down, he always gets back up.
