Strange Son is the dramatic story (part memoir, part groundbreaking science) of how the author learned to communicate with her severely autistic son through meeting Soma Mukhopadhyay, a poor, single mother from Bangalore, India, whose own son, Tito, is a genius who is also severely autistic. In their quest to help their sons, and using Soma's unorthodox methods, they made discoveries that challenge widespread theories about autism and even surpass research in the nation's leading neuroscience labs.



"Portia Iversen has used her eyes and ears to pierce the seemingly impenetrable armor of the autism puzzle, and Strange Son reflects the genius of her ability to observe and to listen, filing away in remarkable detail the life experiences of two boys who carry with them the essential clues for understanding the underlying disturbances in brain architecture and function that result in autism." (Pat Levitt, Ph.D., director of the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center For Research on Human Development)
