Ben is strange: he walks around with gloves and is always carrying shopping bags in both hands. He meets Tamar, who is intrigued by his secret. Slowly, they become friends. Ben doesn’t want anyone to pity him. His way of dealing with his pain is through his imagination, zany humor and laughter. At one point Ben says to Tamar : 0My parents didn’t want to have any children. They did everything they could so that I won’t be born… But, I don’t take it personally, after all, they didn’t know me at the time…
Ben’s Biography is moving and unusually funny, but behind it lies a story dealing with the very sensitive subject of child abuse.
