"Somebody Somewhere: Breaking Free from the World of Autism" (1-85302-719-7) and "Like Colour to the Blind : Soul Searching and Soul Finding" (1-85302-720-0) take up Donna's story at the point at which this volume leaves off.

About the Author

Donna Williams was born in Australia in 1963 and raised in a working-class inner-city area in Australia. She grew up hearing words such as `deaf', `disturbed', `crazy' and `spastic', and like many able people with autism born in the 1960s and earlier, she was wasn't formally diagnosed with autism until adulthood. As well as writing, composing, painting and sculpting, she lectured and ran workshops on autism all around the world.

Reviews

Nobody Nowhere tears aside the veil that conceals the mind of the autistic person. Donna Williams' account has the magnetic and unrivalled power of authenticity... this book is absorbing, disturbing, enriching and it will cause many to substantially revise their views of what it is that constitutes psychological normality. -- Professor Anthony Clare This was an interesting account of Donna's life and how she dealt with the outside world and intertwined her three personalities to cope. I feel this is a worthwhile read for any parent or relative of an autistic person. Teachers and psychologists as well as therapists would better understand how an autistic person sees themselves. -- BellaOnline Reviews Donna Williams isn't just teaching us what it is like to be autistic, she is teaching us what it is like to be human. -- The New York Times Book Review It really is an amazing, engaging autobiography of a fascinating individual. Whether you are familiar with autism first-hand or not, you will have a difficult time putting this book down, I can assure you. -- Autism Cafe.
