A Real Person: Life on the Outside
Souvenir, 2003 - 254 pages
A beautifully written autobiography that gives unique insight into what it means to be autistic - constantly afraid, a preference for the safety of solitude, a tendency towards obsessive behaviour that provides relief. She writes simply and frankly about her attempts to find a way for herself when everything she did felt to be at odds with everyone around her. The story of her realisation that despite her differences she is, in fact, a 'real person'. For those who are not autistic his book will come as a revelation, while it will be of great help to other autistic people, their families and professionals working with them.
