Writers at Work: Flying Asparagus


Wednesday 12 October 2011

Could you memorize a whole volume of the Britannica in an hour? Do you look people in the eyes? What’s the most unusual pet you would have? You hate green peas, don’t you? How do you react when people touch you?

Max has asparagus in his head. Or so he thinks. Trapped in a research programme, he is trying to resist, to find himself, to exceed his limits. Max is our alter-ego. In his case, it’s called Asperger's. It could also simply be called Different.
