Know the Night: A Memoir of Survival in the Small Hours

Maria Mutch explores the miraculous power that care and communication have in the face of the deep, personal isolation that often comes with disability. A chronicle of the witching hours between midnight and 6am, this meditative book takes place during the two-year period in which Mutch’s son Gabriel, who is autistic and also has Down syndrome, rarely slept through the night. We see both Gabriel’s difficult childhood and Maria’s introduction to the world of multiple disability parenting.
