When Herscue Met Jomphrey is a quirky, delightful, sometimes painful, darkly humorous account of a neurodiverse marriage. Narrating what it's like to live with an idiosyncratic Aspie husband, with unparalleled precision, insight and perfect timing, the book reads like the material of a standup comic! As entertaining as a popular novel, with the bittersweet pathos of film noir, I can imagine Aspies and their partners over the world knowingly nodding their heads. Clinicians alike would gain a deeper understanding of what really goes on inside a marriage where one person has Asperger's Syndrome.

The tale of Herscue and Jomphrey is not a tale of woe. It is a tale of hope, patience and commitment. Reading this book made me laugh, hold my breath in disbelief and nod my head in agreement. Bergenstreiml tells the story of her marriage to a very different and highly intelligent man with Asperger Syndrome. Their story is unique and unlike any that I have read; it is a joy to be able to share it with them. A must-have read for anyone seeking to develop a better understanding of AS/NT relationships.
