The beautiful memoir The Boy in the Moon, by Ian Brown, has won a place in the New York Times' annual 10 Best Books of 2011. I wrote about the book's effect on my life here, and I've also had the honor of a small exchange with the great writer himself. I am so happy that a small book of great literary import about a disabled child and his family has made its way to such an exclusive list.
Bravo, Mr. Brown! Thank you for your words, for their resonant power.
