Lou Arrendale, an autistic man living in the future, is pressured by his boss to reverse his autism with a new treatment. His symptoms already somewhat controlled by medication, he lives independently and holds a full-time job where his different way of looking at things has, until now, been appreciated. Lou struggles to decide what to do. Would becoming “normal” outweigh the risk of losing what makes him unique? Is autism a disease or just an alternate way of life? A provocative and touching book, the Speed of Light won the 2003 Nebula Award for Best Novel.
