Since its publication in 1983, A Solitary Dance has enjoyed phenomenal success. After being read on Wisconsin Public Radio's popular Chapter A Day program, A Solitary Dance was selected by Reader's Digest Condensed Books, becoming the first self-published book ever chosen for condensation in RDCB. It went on to be translated into ten languages in eighteen different countries, as well as appearing in a mass market paperback by New American Library.
Since the publication of its sequel, The Confetti Kid, A Solitary Dance has seen a resurgence of interest. It is a timeless story that is still as moving as it was when it first appeared.From the Author:
A Solitary Dance tells the story of a young psychology intern who meets his match with an eight-year-old child with schizophrenia. And how they managed to learn from each other.
There are thousands of children such as I have described here. Living in group homes, treatment centers, mental hospitals across the land, they are called by many names-schizophrenic, emotionally disturbed, autistic. Yet beneath the symptoms that contribute to such diagnoses, one often finds a common denominator: an exquisitely sensitive, confused, lonely youngster. A child who longs not only to be loved, but to be able to love in return.
This story is for each of those special children, and for the people who care for them. It was written with the hope that it will help others have a better understanding of the emotional disorders of childhood.
What I have tried to do is to capture the essence of my experiences, both as a psychotherapist and as a supervising therapist and teacher. Because of that, the story rings true. Yet little Mike, though fashioned from my imagination, will live forever in the hearts of readers.
