The Hampdenshire Wonder

by J. D. Beresford

A brilliant and unsettling, at times moving, account of a superhuman child, his brief trajectory on Earth, the adults he profoundly affects, and his extreme alienation. The author creates one of most convincing and compelling accounts of superhuman intelligence in literature. To appreciate it, however, one ought to have at least rudimentary intelligence, oneself (which disqualifies the one-star reviewer).

Highly recommended.
