As Excerpted in the New York Times
Two selections from The Ride Together were excerpted in the New York Times of Tuesday, June 10th, 2003, with the following intro:

In a new book, "The Ride Together: A Brother and Sister's Memoir of Autism in the Family," Paul and Judy Karasik tell the story of growing up in a tall Victorian house in Chevy Chase, MD., with their parents and two brothers, Michael and David. David, the oldest, is autistic and mildly retarded, and the book follows him as he grows from infancy to middle age. (He is now in his 50's and lives in a group home near Washington. )
Excerpts follow: the first is set in 1960, the second in 1966. Judy Karasik narrates; the cartoons are by Paul Karasik.
