'Gifted Mexican playwright and novelist Sabina Berman's Me has won my heart, and will yours. This untamed, disarming wild child who sits on the beach of a Mexican fishing village, shouting at the sea, slowly learns to explore and fully inhabit her intensely felt universe. Karen Nieto, who progresses from inarticulate niece, to tuna boat-hand, scuba diver, college savant, marine ecologist, business tycoon, world traveller - and, yes, even total failure - offers her readers an unforgettable glimpse of the delights, the comedy and the heartbreak each of us ultimately experiences as we dive into the heart of the tenuous, ever-changing world' - Laura Esquivel, author of Like Water for Chocolate

'A novel of extraordinary sensitivity and tenderness revolving around a semi-savage young girl who is able to transform her surroundings through the implacable logic emanating from her inner being . . . Don't miss this novel because it will move you more than you can imagine' - El Mundo (Spain

'This exhilarating debut novel by Sabina Berman - the Mexican playwright, screenwriter and poet - is narrated by Karen, a woman with autism. But it is emphatically not a Latin American rehash of Mark Haddon's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. Berman's book glows with its very own enticing charm and assurance... the book can be seen as a hymn to "neurodiversity" - the notion that people on the so-called higher-functioning end of the autism spectrum are different, rather than disabled, and are capable of great contributions to society. The plot features international intrigue and kidnappings but there are also memorable characters, poignant dialogue and more cerebral satisfactions' --Adam Feinstein, Observer 7/10

Reseña del editor:

In the wake of her sister's death, Isabelle moves from her home in California to her birthplace in Mexico to take over the running of the family tuna company. There, she discovers a wild child - a thing with no name, who turns out to be the autistic niece she never knew she had. So she sets herself the task of turning it into a human being - a human being named Karen. To start, she tries to get her to say her first word: 'Me'. And then begins the greatest journey of all, as Karen learns how to become 'Me'. It is a voyage of discovery that will take her to the bottom of the ocean, and into the heart of the world.
