Summary This thesis, which consists of a novel and an exegesis comprising two related essays on the themes of motherhood and autism, explores the importance and relevance of fiction in representing the anguish, its causes and the unknowability of a mother and her (possibly) autistic child. The problems of language discovered in this relationship were found to intersect with parallel issues in the realm of creative writing.
