"David Cook, the award-winning and widely acclaimed writer, demonstrates here his remarkable ability to blend drama, compassion, and even humor to tell the story of a rather special person.
WALTER is one of Jesus' mistakes. Some call him "backward," some say he's "handicapped," and others just think of him as a joke. But as readers of this extraordinary novel are about to discover, WALTER is someone whom labels do not describe, a person to respect as well as like. Whether caring for his father's pigeons or working as a stock boy in Woolworths, life is not always easy for WALTER--his mother is frustrated with his handicap, his father is indifferent to his needs, and his co-workers ridicule and taunt him. Although WALTER is inarticulate, David Cook, with astonishing skill, speaks for him and describes his life in an unsentimental way while lending him a quiet dignity. Cook portrays WALTER as a caring, loving, growing man who learns to cope with life and its injustices, indifferences and ultimately death."
