There’s a Problem with Dad, explores the issue of undiagnosed, high functioning autism among adults and the problems it creates for those with the condition and those around them.’

About the book:

George Lovelace has always done everything by the book – so why does he feel so out of step with those around him?
Now in his 70s, he stands alone against a world where feelings and intuition always seem more important than cold logic.
After his wife’s death, he decides to write a book about his great obsession, John Lennon. But when he’s charged with sexually assaulting a 17 year-old girl, his own decline starts to mirror his hero’s leaving, in his mind, no way back.
This thoughtful, yet pacey novel is the first to explore how high functioning autism affects people of all ages, serving as a reminder that neurodiversity
always demands empathy and consideration for voices too often left on the margins.
