Somebody Somewhere: Breaking Free from the World of Autism (Paperback)Donna Williams (author)
- Publisher out of stock
The sequel to the powerful international bestseller Nobody Nowhere, Somebody Somewhere takes us deeper into Donna Williams' Journey into the world. Her war against it is finally over, but the pieces of her life lie scattered around her.
Donna recounts the often funny, sometimes harrowing awakenings arising from sessions with a cognitive psychologist, who helps her understand what she has been through and make sense of her sensory problems, information overload and 'shutdowns'. We travel with her in her breakthroughs in working with autistic children and other adults like herself, as she finally finds a way of belonging and 'simply being' among others, without selling out who she really is.
Somebody Somewhere continues Donna's story in her uniquely poignant yet humorous voice.

"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."
