“If I had been able to use a paintbrush, I might have given you the power to walk steadily from one end of the canvas to the other, but those are the words that I want to be able to offer you, all those words that jostle in strings of dumb phrases in your head, because you can not speak, and that you have so much to say. “Laura Jaffé chose to give voice to Max, the child who did not speak. She writes the words that her little boy expressed so strongly in the absence of voicing them, clumsy words like his gestures, staggering sentences like his steps. So that Max is no longer perceived as a “disabled person”, but as a child, simply as that. Laura also speaks in her own words addressing Max as an adult, and sharing with him his doubts, his misunderstandings, his shame too and his pride above all.
