About the Author:

Born in the early 60s to a single, hippie mother, she grew up in swinging London where the rule book on everything from work to love to parenting was being rewritten in a flurry of optimism. She met her husband, Danny, who is from an orthodox Jewish background, at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. She has three children, Joey (from her first marriage), Evie, and Felix who is severely disabled. His brother Theo died soon after birth. She writes articles and her website www.nikishisler.com provides contacts and links for parents of special needs children.

Review:

"An intensely moving, sometimes unbearable account... It's about passion and love of humanity. Anyone who thinks otherwise should get Niki's book, one of the most uplifting and life-affirming that we have ever read" -- Richard and Judy Daily Express "Beautifully and tenderly written ...Powerful and uplifting tribute to the human capacity to cope" Daily Express "Bolshy, funny, frank, Niki is not martyr material" You Magazine "Searingly honest... As well as being a painfully frank and candid read, Fragile should also serve as an inspiring testament to the power of the human being faced with extraordinary challenges" Birmingham Post
