“Many books have been written about autism spectrum disorder, but this one is special. Special on the one hand because the person who writes it, Nathalie Fougeras, is an exceptional woman. Writer, musician, painter, she excels in all artistic fields and wonderfully describes the poetic and mysterious mysteries of autism as she has experienced it from the inside, always, without even knowing it. This book is also special because of its atypical tone and form, which combines with intelligence and tenderness childhood memories, family images, the phenomenology of neurodiversity and an enlightened and humanist dictionary of terms relating to autism. It is all this that we find in his work, and even more, beneath the surface of the words, a moving depth and great poetry.”

Dr David Gurion, psychiatrist


“With a literary ease that has nothing to envy of a Colette, Nathalie tells us unvarnished about her life and her way of seeing the world. The story is intense, the pages are a pure look that takes us into a world of unsuspected dimensions.”

Isabelle Hénault, psychologist, director of the Autism & Asperger Clinic in Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Fourth cover :


“The Weasel House is a discreet cabin clinging to the hillside, a viewpoint perched on the border between the world of men and that of Nature. A watchtower, with a view of the impasse at the bottom of which our breathless civilization turns desperately in circles, but also an observatory on a wild Nature with original wisdom, which perhaps knows a way out. »


When she moved into the Weasel House, this modern young woman, looking for a little corner of nature close to the city, did not yet imagine the path she was taking. Far from only meeting her needs, the Weasel House will shake up her convictions and lead her to question our relationship with wild nature. Is the place we occupy there ultimately what we imagined?


Through a true manifesto, both intimate and poetic, Nathalie Fougeras – painter, author, botanist and passionate naturalist – casts a benevolent gaze on our world with uncompromising lucidity. A unique point of view on what we call, a little too conveniently, ecology.
