Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mark Haddon (born 26 September 1962) is an English novelist and poet, best known for his 2003 novel The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time. Haddon was born in 1962 in Northampton and educated at Uppingham School and Merton College, Oxford, where he studied English. In 2003, Haddon won the Whitbread Book of the Year Award and in 2004, the Commonwealth Writers' Prize Overall Best First Book for his novel The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, a book which is written from the perspective of a boy with Asperger syndrome. However, Haddon has stated on his website that he knows "very little about the subject," and that he "slightly regret[s]" that the term "Asperger syndrome" appeared on the cover of his book. Moreover, he had done no research about autism before writing the novel. Rather, he recommends that one read works by people who have Asperger syndrome themselves.show more
