    Om Raising Cubby

    The slyly funny, sweetly moving memoir of an unconventional dad's relationship with his equally offbeat soncomplete with fast cars, tall tales, homemade explosives, and a whole lot of fun and troubleJohn Robison was not your typical dad. Diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome at the age of forty, he approached fatherhood as a series of logic puzzles and practical jokes. Instead of a speech about the birds and the bees, he told his son, Cubby, that he'd bought him at the Kid Storeand that the salesman had cheated him by promising Cubby would ';do all chores.' While other parents played catch with their kids, John taught Cubby to drive the family's antique Rolls-Royce. Still, Cubby seemed to be turning out pretty well,at least untilschool authorities decided thathe was dumb and stubbornthe very same thing Johnhad been told as a child. Did Cubby have Asperger's too? The answer was unclear. One thing was clear, though: By the time he turned seventeen, Cubby had become a brilliant and curious chemistsmart enough to make military-grade explosives and bring federal agents calling. With Cubby facing a felony trialand up to sixty years in prisonboth father and son were forced to take stock of their lives, finally accepting that being ';on the spectrum' is both a challenge and a unique gift.
