Jessica Kingsley Publishers

"I knew this guy was out of the square. He was so far out, hewas in the hexagonal prism that was past the triangle next to thesquare." When the author met her future husband, she was instantlycharmed by his intensity, wacky conversation choices, and innate desireto create peculiar names. Seventeen years, one wedding, one baby andseveral adopted names later, it began to dawn on 'Herscue' thatfamily jokes about her husband having Asperger's Syndrome may becloser to the truth than she had first imagined. Filled with moving andhilarious tales, one of which provides the origins of the author andher husband's adopted names, Herscue and Jomphrey, and their evenstranger pronunciations, this personal account grapples with the highsand lows of a 25 year marriage to an Aspie husband.
