In Dave Isay's new book, "MOM," he collects the best pieces of mom-related stories from StoryCorps. Over six years, the organization put up booths where normal people could interview each other about anything they wanted. This one, just animated by StoryCorps, is a twelve-year-old autistic boy interviewing his mom about what it's like to raise him. We were struck by his perceptiveness, his mom's honesty, and the amazing relationship that comes through in just four minutes.
