Summary
From birth Walter has been a fighter. Through his own efforts, he learns to read and write, and even manages to hold down a menial job. But when his parents die, Walter suddenly finds himself alone and unable to cope with crowds, the noise and the world outside his home. The only solution is for him to stay at a psychiatric hospital. Eventually his spirit wins out over his fears and he creates a new life for himself, even finding a love interest
