Tom Cutler is a bestselling author of humour books, including the Amazon number-one blockbuster 211 Things a Bright Boy Can Do. His titles have been translated into several languages. In 2016 he was identified as being on the autism spectrum. This, he says, was the happiest day of his life.
'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 *
'[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 humour..'* 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 *
'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
'Cutler's memoir is a heartwarming account of his life through the lens of his obsessions and eccentricities.'* Happy Mag *
'The perfect stocking filler for the man who has everything.'* The Oldie *
