Lawrence Gold, M.D.

Author Lawrence Gold, M.D.about this book: Aspergers, unfortunately, has too often been caricatured in movies and on TV. This disappoints me and those with the syndrome.

The best way to learn about Aspergers without having the syndrome, is to try to write about it. I learned much and incorporated it into the novel. This novel is tragic, humorous, and inspirational, and, I hope, a good read.

An automobile accident shatters the near-perfect lives of David and Luke Hyatt, identical twins. David survives intact, but Luke nearly dies from his injuries. The residue of Luke's head injury is an acquired form of Asperger's. The twins had graduated from medical school and were about to enter an internship at Brier Hospital in Berkeley. Although Luke is gifted with savant-like intelligence, can he continue his career in medicine? Will health professionals, administrators, and patients themselves accept Luke as a physician or succumb to the petty fear of someone different, or is it time for the world to consider the value of an individual beyond his or her label?
