Kathy Lette / BOOKED OUT

Much has been written of late of the difficulties facing parents of autistic children with one recent study linking the stress involved with parenting children on the spectrum to that of a combat soldier. But what happens when these children grow up? What happens when they want to have a relationship or sex? How does a parent navigate that minefield?

Kathy Lette explores this taboo topic in her latest novel, Best Laid Plans. Written in Kathy’s witty style, it shines a light on a previously undiscussed subject. Kathy proves
that when it comes to sex, we all have special needs and, even the best laid plans can come unstuck.
