Nobody Nowhere

The Extraordinary Autobiography of An Autistic

Unknown - 1992
Rate this:
   Labeled deaf, retarded, disturbed and insane, Donna Williams lived in a world of her own.  Alternating between rigid hostility and extroversion, she waged what she termed her "war against the world."  She existed in a dreamlike state, parroting the voices of those around her in the hope that they would leave her alone.  Few people understood her, least of all Donna helself.    It was not until the age of twenty-five that Donna discovered the word- autism- that would at last give her the opportunity to understand herself and begin to build a bridge to join the world as most know it.    Nobody Nowhere, Donna Williams' extraordinary autobiography, is her heroic attempt to come to terms with autism.  This eloquent memoir reveals a fierce intelligence, great creativity and much humour.  It will shatter many myths and misconceptions.    The poetic sensibility and extraordinary insights of Nobody Nowhere make it inspiring reading for everyone.
