Nobody Nowhere: The Remarkable Autobiography of an Autistic Girl - Donna Williams
Donna Williams was a child with more labels than a jam jar; deaf, wild, disturbed, stupid, insane… In her own words, she was a Nobody Nowhere as she swung violently between a battle to join the world and a battle to keep the world out, a battle she waged from where she lived in what she called 'a world under glass'. Nobody Nowhere is disturbing, eloquent and ticklishly funny: an account of the soul of someone who lived the word 'autism' and survived an unsympathetic environment despite intense inner chaos and incomprehension. Despite the odds, Donna came to live independently, achieve a place at university and write this incredible international bestseller, now in over 14 languages throughout the world. This is a book that will stay with you as one of the most exceptional works you will ever read.
