    Michelle Latiolais is one of the best writers working today one deserving of a much wider readership Her novels are dense, challenging in a great way , and immensely rewarding Her sentences are like intricate gems, refracting in all sorts of interesting ways when you hold them to the light Here s the opening sentence Stan engines into Luke s office, his legs pistoning, fanatical, fueled by something seemingly unstoppable and mechanical, and so frightening and frightening anew each time, Luke mus [...]

    In an interview, Michelle herself says, One of the things we ve forgotten about is the sentence by sentence experience of reading One cannot help but notice the sentences when reading A Proper Knowledge In notes to myself about the book, I wrote while autism may be represented by the inability to speak language in an appropriate way by conforming to established standards of behavior or manners, A Proper Knowledge demonstrates language in the best lyrical sense how a sentence so beautifully wroug [...]

    This novel is fantastic The depth of information about autism is impressive, and the professional and personal stories are very intricately woven There are also a number of observations that are striking in their insightfulness and the way that they instantly remind me of people I have known and experiences I have had.
