A unique and compulsive insight that will make you weep - and laugh.
Iinspired by the life of the author's intellectually handicapped brother, Ronald Downes, this novel is Ronnie talking about some important things. It's also about him needing all the looking after he can be getting, as we travel with this innocent abroad through an increasingly complex special school, from where eventually learning about indee-pend-dancing our hero graduates. He spends his middle years adapting to life with Mother, and then takes a further journey, this time twelve years living with 'Sissy' and her family.
Entertaining, sad, funny, thought-provoking, this is a look at life through the eyes of an exceptional man.
