Osborne stops in to a voodoo temple on the Boulevard de Clichy the steam wreathed inner sanctum of a Turkish bath and an apartment belonging to an ancient veteran of an S amp M brothel that once served the blond conquerors of the German occupation, Thomas Jefferson may have had it The pianist Glenn Gould almost certainly had it There are even those who insist probably incorrectly that Albert Einstein had it Whether it is called geek syndrome high functioning autism or simply Asperger s it is not just one of the most poorly understood of all neurological disorders but amazingly one of the fastest growing of all psychiatric diagnoses in America today Some support organizations even claim that as many as one in five hundred people in the general population suffers from some aspect of the disease Basing his report on memoirs clinical histories poems and stories and visits with dozens of individuals afflicted with the disorder journalist and essayist Lawrence Osborne shows us what life with Asperger s is really like Often brilliant at math and able to perform savant like feats of memory those who are afflicted with the syndrome some percent are boys or men are also wracked with bizarre obsessions And strangely and characteristically most of them are unable to understand even the most simple expressions of the human face They may know everything there is to know about vacuum cleaners the New York City subway system or industrial deep fat fryers or for that matter J S Bach but they are unable to hold a normal conversation about even the most basic of their own feelings or anyone else s They are in their own words the Mind Blind strange solitaires anti social loners in a world dominated by the ordinary people they call neurotypicals In this front line report and very personal investigative journey Osborne also asks hard questions Just how different from the so called normal are those with Asperger s and is it possible that virtually all of us have a little of the syndrome in ourselves Setting aside the usual pieties of medicine and rehabilitation he embarks on a quest that casts a skeptical eye on American psychiatric culture with its tendency to over diagnose then over medicate And even more he ventures into the elusive but essential realm where one has to ask what is the difference between eccentricity with all its potential for creativity for enriching our society and ourselves and normality with its undertones of blandness averageness and uniformity, No description available, What is taste Is it individual or imposed on us from the outside Why are so many of us so intimidated when presented with the wine list at a restaurant In i The Accidental Connoisseur i journalist Lawrence Osborne takes off on a personal voyage through a little known world in pursuit of some answers Weaving together a fantastic cast of eccentrics and obsessives industry magnates and small farmers the author explores the way technological change opinionated critics consumer trends wheelers and dealers trade wars and mass market tastes have made the elixir we drink today entirely different from the wine drunk by our grandparents br br In his search for wine that is a true expression of the place that produced it Osborne takes the reader from the high tech present to the primitive past From a lavish lunch with wine tsar Robert Mondavi to the cellars of Marquis Piero Antinori in Florence from the tasting rooms of Chateau Lafite to the humble vineyards of northern Lazio Osborne winds his way through Renaissance palaces million wineries tin shacks and garages opulent restaurants world famous chais and vineyards renowned villages and obscure landscapes as well as the great cities which are the temples of wine consumption New York San Francisco Paris Florence and Rome On the way we will be shown the vast tapestry of this much desired little understood drink who produces it and why who consumes it who critiques it Enchanting delightful entertaining and above all down to earth this is a wine book like no other
