Tommy's Sunset is a translation of the acclaimed Japanese novel
about the journey of a mother and her autistic child. Drawing from
her own personal life story, Hisako Tsurushima has provided a
definitive work about the problems and surprising joys for the
autistic and those who love them. Readers experience the range of
emotions as Tommy and his mother are routinely embarrassed in
social situations and share delight in private moments. As she
lovingly describes these characters, Tsurushima ultimately
investigates the source of our social responses to people who are
in any way different than ourselves. Tommy's Sunset was the basis
for the Japanese Film Gakko III, which was shown in the United
States under the title The New Voyage. Tommy's Sunset is a
deceptively simple novel that will leave readers with a lasting
impression and a new outlook on what it means to be different.
