Craig Lancaster, author of 600 Hours of Edward
During November 2008, Craig Lancaster wrote 80,000 words for National Novel Writing Month. Those words became his first novel: 600 Hours of Edward.
Edward Stanton, Lancaster's main character, has Asberger Syndrome and obsessive-compulsive disorder. He lives alone, and he likes it that way. But, then he meets a young boy and the structure of his carefully constructed world, with its safe routines, begins to crumble.
You're probably thinking, "Borrriinnggg!" But you'd be wrong.
