520    "In a long sequence of prose poems, questionnaires, and 
       standardized tests, The Boy in the Labyrinth interrogates 
       the language of autism and the language barriers between 
       parents, their children, and the fractured medium of 
       science and school. Structured as a Greek play, the book 
       opens with a parents' earnest quest for answers, 
       understanding, and doubt. Each section of the Three Act is
       highlighted by "Autism Spectrum Questionnaires" which are 
       in dialogue with and in opposition to what the parent 
       perceives to be their relationship with their child. 
       Interspersed throughout each section are sequences of 
       standardized test questions akin to those one would find 
       in grade school, except these questions unravel into 
       deeper mysteries. The depth of the book is told in a 
       series of episodic prose poems that parallel the parable 
       of Theseus and the Minotaur. In these short clips of 
       montage the unnamed "boy" explores his world and the world
       of perception, all the while hearing the rumblings of the 
       Minotaur somewhere in the heart of an immense Labyrinth. 
       Through the medium of this allusion, de la Paz meditates 
       on failures, foundering, and the possibility of finding 
       one's way"--|cProvided by publisher.
