Publishers Weekly, 1996-06-03 In her earlier, popular books (Nobody Nowhere; Somebody Somewhere), Australian-born Williams tracked the arduous journey by which she took control of her life after being diagnosed as autistic. Her emergence into the "vast fish tank called the world" was accompanied by often negative inner defenses, aspects of her personality to which she gives names. In her mid-20s, in England, she meets Ian, a similarly "high-functioning" autistic man. Their attempt to share life exposes them to a wider realm fraught with sudden changes and challenges. Williams, widely traveled and sought after by sufferers of the pervasive developmental disorder of autism, reveals how she coped with fragmented visual and auditory reception, the limitations of defensive security and the emotional challenge of finally "having a specialship with someone like myself." It comes as a surprise, then, to learn she is no longer married to Ian. With forward-looking ?lan, Williams indicates that her daunting trek to reconcile inner and outer worlds will take another turn. (July) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
