Fall Down Seven Times, Get Up Eight: A young man’s voice from the silence of autism

Hay Festival 2017 , 

The novelist launches his translation of the new book by Naoki Higashida. It’s part memoir, part critique of a world that sees disabilities ahead of disabled people, it opens a window into the mind and world of an autistic, non-verbal young adult, providing remarkable insights into autism in general. Chaired by Rosie Goldsmith.
