The Apothecary of Flight is a heady flight into the art of poetry itself: its vital importance as a tool for expression; for understanding and translating the self; for articulating the sheer force and joy of poetry
and the way, for a person with autism, it can hold, identify and celebrate both the smallest and weightiest
of life's experiences and concepts.
