With a powerful voice and a highly accomplished, gripping style of storytelling, he takes the reader on a voyage involving guitars, radio, rock and roll, love, therapy, surgeries, school, falling, climbing the Statue of Liberty on his hands and knees, learning to tie his shoes at the age of twelve, falling some more, wheeling solo in a wheelchair in city traffic, getting busted by the United States government, almost going to prison, and much more. Along the way are shiny moments of joy, and portraits of the many people who helped him, even when he didn’t want them to.

Everyone who has ever felt like an outsider, or “an alien,” as Michael thought of himself as a child, will find a rare kinship in these pages, as well as the warmth, wit, and excellent company of a fellow traveler.
