A lighter touch from O’Connell than his recent stories, as a young man seeks professional help for his life issues – all of which related to his inability to engage with others. He gets some help (professional up to a point!) – will he be able to get his foot off the bottom rung of the autistic spectrum ladder and tread a path with the rest of us??
Another example of O’Connell handling the human angle of stories well.
