We’re delighted to announce that Ant Press author Mike Cavanagh’s fascinating new memoir, One of its Legs are Both the Same is now available on pre-order until 29th August when it will be released in ebook and paperback.
Mike’s memoir covers his time living an alternative lifestyle, with undiagnosed autism, in 1970s Australia.
Here’s the synopsis:
Do you know what makes you, you? Mike thought he did, until a diagnosis of Asperger’s Syndrome in his sixties gave him pause to rethink who he thought he was, and how he got there. ‘One of its Legs are Both the Same’ is Mike’s memoir of being, as his mum would say, different. An intriguing and rollicking tale of the hippie era of the early 1970s, featuring murderous rats, painfully low door lintels, angry spiders and a rabid duck. Forced to face demons of his own making, and finding guardian angels in unexpected places, Mike eventually finds understanding of his life of difference amidst events and circumstances of trauma, bizarre happenings (including being sexually molested by a glowing cat), serendipity and near misses, as well as beauty and much laughter. And a lot of no sex.
