Requesting Title: Exiting Nirvana: A Daughter’s Life with Autism
Author: Park, Clara Claiborn
Published: 2001
Summary:
Reprising her own now classic work The Siege, which covered the early years of her autistic daughters life, Clara Claiborne 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 ever hoped for, becoming an accomplished artist, and growing into an active member of her family and community.
