Audible Editor Reviews

Being diagnosed with autism at the age of three hasn't stopped Tito Rajarshi Mukhopadhyay from writing some remarkable stories. The Gold of the Sunbeams, his second collection, is rife with striking imagery and a charming perspective that belies its author's condition. Sanjiv Jhaveri beautifully conveys Mukhopadhyay's sense of wonder and curious wisdom, making The Gold of the Sunbeams a joyous experience. Listeners gain insight into Mukhopadhyay's creative mind as he prefaces each story with a note on their inspiration and, through his eyes, are given the privilege of seeing the world with a new sensibility.

Publisher's Summary

Diagnosed as severely autistic at the age of three, Tito, nearly nonverbal, was brought up by his loving mother Soma, who taught him to read English and challenged him to write his own stories. The initial result was The Mind Tree, published in 2003, which Tito wrote between the ages of eight and 11. The Gold of the Sunbeams is an equally impressive, beautiful collection of stories, each prefaced by a charming note from Tito explaining how the story came into being. Above all, this is the work of a true poet.
