Funny and heartbreaking in equal measure, the impassioned debut novel about fathers, sons, and autism In the “literary territory of Tony Parsons and Nick Hornby” (Guardian) Shtum is drawn from Jem Lester’s experience of raising an autistic child. In this darkly funny and emotive debut, Ben Jewell has hit a breaking point. His profoundly autistic ten-year-old son, Jonah, has never spoken, and Ben and his wife Emma are struggling to cope. When Ben and Emma fake a separation—a strategic, yet ill-advised, decision to further Jonah’s case in an upcoming tribunal to determine the future of his education—father and son are forced to move in with Georg, Ben’s elderly and cantankerous father. In a small house in north London, three generations of men— one who can’t talk; two who won’t—are thrown together. As Ben confronts single fatherhood, he must battle a string of well-meaning social workers and his own demons to advocate for his son, learning some harsh lessons about accountability from his own father along the way. As the tribunal draws near, Jonah, blissful in his innocence, becomes the prism through which all the complicated strands of personal identity, family history, and misunderstanding are finally untangled. This “fiercely funny” (The Times) debut examines the complexities of family and human emotion and gives profound insight into an often-misunderstood disorder.

What's your point of view? What's your story? When do you need to communicate it? To whom? How? And when is it better to keep shtum? Anyone in the public eye (institutions, businesses, individuals) needs a communication strategy that helps achieve their objectives. Without a communication strategy, you risk everything spinning out of control. Without a communication strategy, you can't put your strategy into effect. Without a communication strategy, you don't know when, to whom, or how to tell your story. There are thousands of books on public communication but:* Most of them are about tactics, not strategy. They tell you how to publicize a new product or run a campaign. They don't tell you where communication fits into your strategy.* Most of them are idealistic, preaching openness and transparency.* Most of them assume that publicity is a Good Thing. One of the secrets of top professionals is that it's often better to say less. This book is the product of lessons learned over more than 30 years in the business of communication and a study of communication strategy. Instead of telling you what you ought to do (or telling you the author's life story), this book tells you what works. Drawing on the literature about public relations, communication theory, strategic management, politics and other relevant fields, as well as making extensive use of cases, it proposes a new synthesis of communication strategy.
