|Spoonface is the moving and thought-provoking story of an eight year old, opera-loving, autistic girl who also suffers from terminal cancer. Never self-pitying or sentimental, Spoonface struggles to come to terms with life and death. Throughout, her perception of events around her is acute, even if her thoughts are at times jumbled.|
In her bedroom, Spoonface questions and investigates her world, echoing the words of her parents, Mrs Spud, the cleaning lady and Dr Bernstein, her doctor.
"Spoonface Steinberg" is a poignant, exhilarating and ever-hopeful monologue in which we learn to appreciate the beauty in the world, in humanity and in adversity.
