Growing up in Australia in the 1970s, Caiseal Mor was labelled ‘retarded’ and ‘an idiot’, and his parents were led to believe that physical punishment could cure his autism.

In this courageous and captivating autobiography, Mor vividly captures his early experiences of dissociation from his true existence – a common reaction by children suffering from repeated abuse – and the various personas through which he lived through in his teens and early adulthood – the Mahjee, Charles P. Puddlejumper, Marco Polo and Chameleon Feeble. The rocky path towards discovering his true identity and finally accepting himself takes him on a spiritual pilgrimage via several different countries, once nearly getting caught unwittingly carrying drugs over the Moroccan border; forming relationships with people he meets but very often misjudges; to the revelation – the awakening – of love and acceptance.



A Blessing and a Curse.



His book captures the nostalgic romanticism of the Australian bush in the 1960s but also the height of deep ignorance and the culture of “see no evil’ in which almost all who could and should have changed things, looked the other way… Caiseal’s book is as beautiful and magical as it is shocking
