Eye Can Write: A memoir of a child's silent soul emerging [9781911600787]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Can you imagine not being able to speak or communicate? The silence, the loneliness, the pain. But, inside you disappear to magical places, and even meet your best friend there. However, most of the time you remain imprisoned within the isolation. Waiting, longing, hoping. Until someone realises your potential and discovers your key, so your unlocking can begin. Now you are free, flying like a wild bird in the open sky. A voice for the voiceless.

Jonathan Bryan has severe cerebral palsy, a condition that makes him incapable of voluntary movement or speech. He was locked inside his own mind, aware of the outside world but unable to fully communicate with it until he found a way by using his eyes to laboriously choose individual letters, and through this make his thoughts known.

In Eye can Write, we read of his intense passion for life, his mischievous sense of fun, his hopes, his fears and what it's like to be him. This is a powerful book from an incredible young writer whose writing ability defies age or physical disability - a truly inspirational figure.

With a foreword by Sir Michael Morpurgo, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to Jonathan Bryan's charity, Teach Us Too. http://www.teachustoo.org.uk/ 

AUTHOR: Jonathan is 12 years old. This is the incredible and moving true story of a child who is locked in and his struggle to communicate with the world.

'A writer of great emotional and intellectual depth... His words tell us so much about our universal human resilience, our capacity for understanding, our longing to communicate. Jonathan has opened the door for us into his world, and reached out his hand to us in his writing. When we take his hand as we read, he is not locked in any more. And neither are we. We join him in his journey, he joins us in ours.' - MICHAEL MORPURGO

'Jonathan's story is such a powerful one - and light, love, and compassion shine from everything he does. It is an honour to call him my friend' - BEAR GRYLLS
