Schuyler's Monster Summary


Schuyler's Monster by Robert Rummel-Hudson

When Schuyler was found to be unable to speak and diagnosed with polymicrogyria, her parents needed to figure out a way to help her learn to communicate. What they didn't know was that their daughter was going to teach them a thing or two about fearlessness, tenacity, and joy.

Schuyler's Monster Reviews


Advance praise for Schuyler's Monster:
"A gripping explication, shot through with equal parts horror and hope, of how parenthood can turn ordinary people into passionate advocates." -Neal Pollack, author of "Alternadad
""Robert Rummel-Hudson is brave enough to reveal the damage the discovery of his child's condition did to his marriage and to his own sense of self. He manages to repair some of the damage through close involvement with Schuyler and vigorous campaigning on her behalf. His memoir is honest, often painful and deeply personal." -Charlotte Moore, author of "George & Sam
""The book is engaging and honest--I'm sure it will help many parents who are struggling to find the most loving way to help their children who have 'issues.'" -Dana Buchman, designer, author of "A Special Education"
