All I Can Handle : I'm No Mother Teresa: A Life Raising Three Daughters with Autism
by Kim (stagliano) Rossi and Kim Stagliano Rossi and Jenny McCarthy




Overview -
Dr. Spock? Check. Penelope Ann Leach (remember her?)? Check. What to Expect When You're Expecting? Check. I had a seven hundred dollar Bellini crib for God's sake I was perfect. And so was Mia when she was born . . .

...and so begins Kim Stagliano's electrifying and hilarious memoir of her family's journey raising three daughters with autism. In these stories, Stagliano has joined the ranks of David Sedaris and Augusten Burroughs with her amazing ability to lay everything on the table--from family, friends, and enemies to basement floods to birthdays to (possible) heroin addictions--eviscerating and celebrating the absurd. From her love of Howard Stern to her increasing activism in the autism community and exhaustive search for treatments that will help her daughters, she covers it all. Always outspoken, often touching, and sometimes heartbreaking, Kim Stagliano is a powerful new voice in comedic writing--her "Kimoir" (as she calls it) will be a must-read within the autism community and the literary world at large.
