Sequel to the international bestseller Nobody Nowhere takes us through the next phase of Williams' journey

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 wasn't formally diagnosed with autism until adulthood. As well as writing, composing, painting and sculpting, she lectures and runs workshops on autism all around the world. Donna is the author of four autobiographies - Nobody Nowhere, Somebody Somewhere, Like Colour to the Blind and Everyday Heaven - along with several other books on autism, Autism and Sensing, Autism: An Inside-Out Approach, Exposure Anxiety, The Jumbled Jigsaw (forthcoming) and a collection of her poetry, Not Just Anything: A Collection of Thoughts on Paper. These books are also published by and available from Jessica Kingsley Publishers. Her first international best-selling autobiography, Nobody Nowhere, is currently under option by a Hollywood film company. After 13 years in the UK, she now lives back in Australia with her husband Chris.

Reviews

"This book deserves every superlative a reviewer can muster."
-The Globe and Mail
"To be able to do what [Donna Williams] has done, by age 27, and to write about it so poignantly and so articulately is to function on a higher level than most 'normal' folk achieve in a lifetime."
-Boston Globe
"By illuminating her own unique perceptions, she allows us to understand our own perceptions as never before...And oh, can she write."
-The New York Times Review of Books
"The artistically gifted Williams continues to build a bridge between 'my' world and 'the'world."
-Publishers Weekly
"Somebody Somewhere...provides a shining light into the dark mystery of autism."
-Detroit Free Press
