Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Australian-born Donna Williams, diagnosed with autism in 1985 at age 25, has written six books on autism, two of which are autobiographical works. Here she talks about an overwhelming need to shield themselves that autistic individuals, including herself, experience. It is a need that is often misinterpreted and leads to painful social isolation. Mirroring the convolutions of her thought processes, her writing is rambling and repetitive but provides valuable insights into the human experience from an autistic person's perspective.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

This is a riveting text book about the social-emotional self protection response of Exposure Anxiety. Exposure Anxiety is the Invisible Cage, an involuntary response that challenges the person to either side with it and identify self with their own avoidance, diversion and retaliation responses or live with the frustration and despair of being aware of self but buried alive.

Published in 2003, this is the first ever text book by a person diagnosed with autism specifically focusing on co-morbid anxiety and impulse control disorders effecting those on the autistic spectrum and offering an innovative new approach to working with some of the most challenged people on the autistic spectrum.

About the Author

When Donna Williams was nine they found out that she actually couldn't understand sentences. Hard to imagine that from there she has become an author with 9 published books including two international bestsellers.

Her writing career began when a typewriter was left in her room at the age of nine. She typed a whole line of letter patterns. Over the next four years the letter patterns would become word lists and the word lists would eventually become poetry hidden in a roof void for nobody to see. Donna Williams' career as a writer had begun.

She went on to write songs, re-entered education and developed an ability to write essays, then exploded into the literary world with her first two autobiographical works, the international bestsellers, Nobody Nowhere and then Somebody Somewhere. She followed these with two more autobiographical works, Like Color To The Blind and Everyday Heaven, which also sold internationally and then wrote a series of text books, Autism; An Inside Out Approach, Autism and Sensing; The Unlost Instinct, Exposure Anxiety; The Invisible Cage of Involuntary Self Protection Responses and The Jumbled Jigsaw and the poetry work, Not Just Anything.

Today she continues to write in a range of genres, including moving into fiction and film. Outside of her writing, she is an accomplished artist, sculptor and songwriter and regularly gives international lectures. She lives in the hills in semi-rural Melbourne with her husband Chris.
