Exiting Nirvana: A Daughter's Life with Autism

Exiting Nirvana: A Daughter's Life with Autism

No. 8541

by Clara Claiborne Park
In a memoir that reprises her own now-classic work The Siege, which covered the early years of her autistic daughter's life, Clara Caliborne Park gives us a moving, eloquent portrait of Jessy as an autistic adult—still struggling with language, with hypersensitivities and obsessions, and with the social interactions that most of us take for granted, but at the same time achieving more than her parents could have hoped for, becoming an accomplished artist, and growing into an active member of her family and community.
