    Audie Award, Autobiography/Memoir, 2016. In January 1988 Martin Pistorius, aged 12, fell inexplicably sick. First he lost his voice and stopped eating. Then he slept constantly and shunned human contact. Doctors were mystified. Within 18 months he was mute and wheelchair bound. Martin's parents were told an unknown degenerative disease left him with the mind of a baby and fewer than two years to live.

    Martin Pistorius war gerade zwölf geworden, als eine rätselhafte Erkrankung ihn seines bisherigen Lebens beraubte. Elf Jahre blieb er vollständig gelähmt, und seine Umwelt ging davon aus, dass er praktisch hirntot war. Er konnte sich in keiner Weise verständlich machen - und war doch innerlich hellwach. Niemand merkte, dass sein Gehirn sich nach einigen Monaten wieder vollständig erholt hatte. Von nun an musste er hilflos ertragen, dass er wie ein Baby behandelt wurde.

    Januar måned 1988 Martin er tolv år, da han pludseligt og af uforklarlige årsager bliver syg. Atten måneder senere sidder han i en rullestol og er stum. Laegerne er rådvilde og fortaeller Martins foraeldre, at deres søn lider af et sjaeldent syndrom, som har forvandlet ham fra en normal velfungerende dreng til en grøntsag med bevidsthed som en baby. At det er en realitet, som de er nødt til at se i øjnene. Hvad ingen ved er, at selvom Martins krop forbliver ubevaegelig, vaekkes hans bevidsthed langsomt til live, men han er ikke i stand til at fortaelle nogen om det.
