SOMEBODY, PLEASE TELL ME WHO I AM is a very intimate, intense chronicle of one young man's rehabilitation after a catastrophic war injury. The central event -- Ben Bright's recovery -- is presented from a number of intriguing angles, and the authors show how Ben's search for identity affects his parents' marriage, his fiancee's ideas of commitment, and his autistic younger brother's search for connection. Short and to the point, Somebody, Please Tell Me... addresses its serious subject with truth and grace.
