Unstrange Minds Selected as Library Journal Best Books, 2007  (will appear in LJ December issue):


Anthropologist Grinker’s affecting investigation communicates a much-needed truth: autism is both a disease (biological) and an illness, i.e., a life-altering experience completely at odds with society. Hope then comes like a bullet via vignettes of parents from America to Korea who’ve adapted to their children’s “unstrange” worldviews. (LJ 1/07)

 
Finalist, Victor Turner Prize for Ethnographic Writing, American Anthropological Association (AAA), presented to Unstrange Minds at an Awards Ceremeony at the AAA meetings, 12/1/07, Washington, D.C.

"Best Books 2007" (Library Journal)
