About the Author

Tom Cutler is a bestselling author of humor books, including 211 Things a Bright Boy Can Do and The Gentleman's Bedside Companion. The son of a sex therapist and a sometime Dominican friar, Tom Cutler is one of the few Englishmen to have been married in Bismarck, North Dakota. He is a practising magician and member of the Magic Circle, as well as a detective story fan and longstanding Sherlock Holmes aficionado. In 2016 he was identified as being on the autism spectrum. This, he says, was the happiest day of his life.

Reviews

"This is a delightful and intimate insight into Asperger's, it couldn't be more timely or more valuable."
--Nicholas Blincoe, author of Manchester Slingback

"A British humor writer chronicles his experiences with Asperger's syndrome, for which he didn't receive a diagnosis until he was 55, and explores some of the science associated with the condition...[T]he meat of the book is Cutler's detailed, highly entertaining examination of his life on the spectrum, and his unique brand of comedy is evident throughout...An intimate embrace of Asperger's full of both melancholy and salty humor."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Honest, witty and informative, this is an important and valuable book on many levels ... If you have a friend or family member who is on the Autism Spectrum, this book will go a long way toward helping to understand the immense effort it requires to try to fit into a 'neurotypical' world."
--The Sherlock Holmes Journal

"What makes this book extraordinary...is not the autism of its author but Cutler's ability to articulate subtle shades of feeling in prose that feels both rigorously precise and uproariously funny. By its unexpectedly heart-wrenching conclusion, Keep Clear has delivered the readers into a world transformed by being glimpsed through the eyes of another--the reward of all superb writing."
--Steve Silberman, The Spectator

Praise for A Gentleman's Bedside Book:

"The perfect stocking filler for the man who has everything."
--The Oldie
