    schema:description "In these three autobiographies, Donna Williams recounts the story of her struggle with autism: how it has shaped her world and the way in which she attempts to break through to the other side. 'I'm a culture looking for a place to happen' she writes in Somebody Somewhere, the sequel to Nobody Nowhere (which reached the bestseller list when published as a trade paperback). The search for this 'place' is central to Donna's survival in an unsympathetic, ignorant world which fails to comprehend her version of normality. Her life story is a landmark in the literature of mental health and gives a unique perspective on living with autism from the inside. In Nobody Nowhere, she describes the desolation of the first twenty-five years of her life, before discovering the word 'autism' - a label which brought with it some answers and the hope of a sense of belonging. Somebody Somewhere takes up the thread of her story at the point where Nobody Nowhere left off: her ongoing battle to overcome the compulsions and obsessions of autism, and her increasingly successful efforts to lead a normal life, despite her condition. Available for the first time in the UK, Like Colour to the Blind tells the story of Donna's relationship with Ian, a man with difficulties similar to her own. She describes how they learn to admit and live with their feelings for one another, as they search for a true sense of self. '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 '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 Book Times Review (of Somebody Somewhere)."@en ;
