As autistic adults are becoming more visible in the world and as we increasingly recognize ourselves, we’re finally seeing titles begin to reflect more of the range of autistic lives. This collection of first-person accounts lets us inside the experiences of autistic adults “spanning different continents, genders, sexualities and ethnicities.” Whoever you are, at whatever point in your autistic journey, finding yourself in the experiences of others — especially after a lifetime of being “The Only” — is life-giving.
Since more and more Autastic.com community members are over 50 (hooray for finding yourself at every age!) this collection is especially welcome. Bonus: Ratcliffe is an #ActuallyAutistic editor, just as we like it.
This title, like all items in The Autastic Shop, is a community pick.
Good to know:
- 272 pages.
- An Amazon Kindle version is available.
Alex Ratcliffe is an editor and advocate.
