Hi to all I just wanted to draw your attention towards the wonderful Graphic Novel "The World Beyond My Shadow" by Daniela Schreiter, a German autistic woman, now available in English as well. The book was published some years ago in German and it was a huge success. The author describes how she grew up sewing the world trough her autistic eyes without knowing she's autistic. Schreiter uses a very humorous style, nevertheless, the novel does not trivialise problems that occurred in her life. It was the only book about autism my mother accepted to read and after having read it she was much more willing to accept my diagnosis and returned the book saying "now I get it, you're not sick or anything else, you just have a different perception of the world and people". I can highly recommend this book, I've mentioned it before when only the German version was available but I can't find the topic any more. For those of you knowing German: There's a sequel available.
