    Summary

    Mark Barnum Haddon knows nothing of any country besides Britain and isn’t entirely sure what a prime number is. He can’t draw very well and has no understanding of research ethics. He cannot stand to have his integrity questioned. And he detests Americans. Cursed with an inability to press his shift key, for sixty three-year-old Mark research and the perspectives of autistics have little meaning. He lives on lies, self-congratulation, and a flask of vodka clasped in his sweaty hand.

    Then one night, the dogs are let out and it’s judgement day for his little solipsistic wonderland. Mark sets out to deny the truth in the style of his favorite (illogical) liar, Lance Armstrong. What follows makes for a novella that is furious, parodic and violently cathartic in its portrayal of a self-satisfied, yet self-loathing, creep.
