In January 1988, aged twelve, Martin Pistorius fell inexplicably sick. First he lost his voice and stopped eating; then he slept constantly and shunned human contact. Doctors were mystified. Within eighteen months he was mute and wheelchair-bound. Martin's parents were told that an unknown degenerative disease had left him with the mind of a baby and he probably had less than two years to live. Martin went on to be cared for at centres for severely disabled children, a shell of the bright, vivacious boy he had once been. What no-one knew is that while Martin's body remained unresponsive his mind slowly woke up, yet he could tell no-one; he was a prisoner inside a broken body. Then, in 1998, when Martin was twenty-three years old, an aromatherapy masseuse began treating him and sensed some part of him was alert. Experts were dismissive, but his parents persevered and soon realised their son was as intelligent as he'd always been. With no memory of the time before his illness, Martin was a man-child reborn in a world he didn't know. He was still in a wheelchair and unable to speak, but he was brilliantly adept at computer technology. Since then, and against all odds, he has fallen in love, married and set up a design business which he runs from his home in Essex.Ghost Boyis an incredible, deeply moving story of recovery and the power of love. Through Martin's story we can know what it is like to be here and yet not here - unable to communicate yet feeling and understanding everything. Martin's emergence from his darkness enables us to celebrate the human spirit and is a wake-up call to cherish our own lives.

Martin Pistorius vertelt in Ghost Boy hoe hij als kind het locked-in-syndroom beleefde. Op zijn twaalfde begon het met een geheimzinnige griep. Binnen anderhalf jaar zat hij in een rolstoel en kon hij niet meer communiceren. Hij zag en hoorde alles, maar niemand merkte het. Je ergste nachtmerrie wordt werkelijkheid. Artsen dachten dat Martin het cognitieve niveau had van een pasgeborene. Hij belandde in een verzorgingstehuis voor gehandicapten, waar hij steeds verder verwijderd raakte van de wereld. Na elf jaar ontdekte een therapeute dat Martin wel degelijk reageerde op prikkels. Zij schonk hem aandacht, bleef met hem praten, en hij ging communiceren met zijn ogen. Dankzij haar hoop bevrijdde hij zich na twaalf lange jaren uit zijn lichamelijke gevangenis. Ghost Boy is een aangrijpend boek. Je leeft als lezer mee met Martin, in zijn onmacht om zich te uiten. Ervaar zelf hoe hoop en doorzettingsvermogen alle moeilijkheden in het leven kunnen overwinnen. Martin Pistorius (Zuid-Afrika, 1975) communiceert via een stemcomputer, is getrouwd en woont in Engeland. Hij is auteur en webdesigner.

Harold Kline is an albino--an outcast. Folks stare and taunt, calling him Ghost Boy. It's been that way all of his 14 years. So when the circus comes to town, Harold runs off to join it. Full of colorful performers, the circus seems like the answer to Harold's loneliness. He's eager to meet the Cannibal King, a sideshow attraction who's an albino too. He's touched that Princess Minikin and the Fossil Man, two other sideshow curiosities, embrace him like a son. He's in love with Flip, the beguiling horse trainer, and awed by the all-knowing Gypsy Magda. Most of all, Harold is proud of training the elephants, and of earning respect and a sense of normality. Even at the circus, though, two groups exist--the freaks, and everyone else. Harold straddles both groups. But fitting in with those who are "normal" comes at a price, and sometimes it's recognizing the truth beneath what's apparent that ultimately leads to happiness . . . and turns a boy into a man.
