9781435200036: A Corner of the Universe

The summer Hattie turns 12, her predictable smalltown life is turned on end when her uncle Adam returns home for the first time in over ten years. Hattie has never met him, never known about him. He's been institutionalized; his condition invovles schizophrenia and autism.Hattie, a shy girl who prefers the company of adults, takes immediately to her excitable uncle, even when the rest of the family -- her parents and grandparents -- have trouble dealing with his intense way of seeing the world. And Adam, too, sees that Hattie is special, that her quiet, shy ways are not a disability,

From AudioFile:

The author's comments at the end of this audiobook confirm the personal connection she has with this story of families and tolerance, but listeners have no doubt in the honesty of 11-year-old Hattie Owen. Steeped in a 1950s setting, adults will especially enjoy the fine cultural details and children will easily grasp the different pace and manners of the time, and Hattie's small town life. Judith Ivey is exceptional--conveying striking emotional and compassionate power. Ivey's portrait of Adam, Hattie's disabled, savant uncle who suddenly reenters the family's life, is nothing short of brilliant. His accelerated, charged speech, and rhythmic then agitated tone and timbre is masterfully handled. Ivey masters the dialogue, mimicking "I Love Lucy" shows and making obtuse connections, giving listeners an involving glimpse into Adam's corner of the universe.
