INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER * "Witty, dry, and gimlet-eyed, this is a necessary corrective in a world where Autistic women are all either written off as quiet and docile, or erased entirely." --Devon Price, Ph.D., author of Unmasking Autism Scottish comedian Fern Brady was told she couldn't be autistic because she'd had loads of boyfriends and is good at eye contact. In this frank and surreal memoir, she delivers a sharp and often hilarious portrait of neurodivergence and living unmasked. After reading about autism in her teens, Fern Brady knew instinctively that she had it--autism explained her sensory issues, her meltdowns, her inability to pick up on social cues--and she told her doctor as much. But it took until she was thirty-four for her to get diagnosed. Strong Female Character is about the years in between, and the unique combination of sexism and ableism that so often prevents autistic women from getting diagnosed until adulthood. Coming from a working-class Scottish Catholic family, Fern wasn't exactly poised to receive an open-minded acceptance of her neurodivergence. With the piercing clarity and wit that has put her at the top of the British comedy scene, she now reflects on the ways her undiagnosed autism influenced her youth, from the tree that functioned as her childhood best friend to the psychiatric facility where she ended up when neither her parents nor school knew what to do with her. In a memoir as hilarious as it is heartbreaking, Fern leaves no stone unturned while detailing her futile attempts at employment, her increasingly destructive coping mechanisms, and the meltdowns that left her mind (and apartment) in ruins. Her chaotic, nonlinear journey--from stripping to getting arrested to finding a lifeline in comedy to her breakout appearance on the Taskmaster TV show as her full, unmasked self--is both a remarkable coming-of-age tale and a dark but poignant tribute to life at the intersection of womanhood and neurodiversity. Strong Female Character is a story of how being female can get in the way of being autistic and how being autistic gets in the way of being the 'right kind' of woman.… (lisätietoja)

In her unique and colorful Scottish brogue, Fern Brady tries to explain the nearly unexplainable experience of being an undiagnosed autistic teen and woman. She holds nothing back, sharing all the difficulties and misunderstandings that define the life of an autistic person. May be an invaluable, if harsh, resource for those with autism or those who care about someone with autism. Perfectly narrated by the author. ( )

This is a memoir by a comedian who was finally diagnosed as autistic when she was in her thirties - she was just thought to be a wildly misbehaving child by her family. She mentions several situations that autistic women gravitate toward, one of which is being a stripper. I think this is because these women are in the present, they see a job, figure out how to do it, and don't get all involved in popular ideas of morality. You can see some of her act on YouTube. She really is funny in her act, not in the book. ( )

Strong Female Character is a raw, no-holds-barred memoir by Scottish comedian Fern Brady about growing up with undiagnosed autism. Not just undiagnosed but misdiagnosed and incorrectly medicated, which made Brady's time at secondary school and university ones of real turmoil, and put immense strain on her relationships with her family and her various partners.

Brady makes some good points, and I'm sure there will be many people with similar backgrounds who find that this book resonates with them. But I finished Strong Female Character feeling highly ambivalent about it, for a variety of reasons. All I will say is that as a memoir this feels premature, or at least that in a few years Brady may find herself writing a follow-up volume that displays the benefits of some more hindsight—while she is a feminist, she has clearly internalised a lot of fatphobia, classism, misogyny, etc, that she hasn't even begun to grapple with.

Väga huvitav raamat!
KOlm punkti sellepärast, et autor on kuidagi negatiivne. Ta peatub pikalt ja põhjalikult kõiksugu probleemidel ja viltuminekutel ja üldse halval, aga kõigest heast libiseb lihtsalt üle - mingite täiesti juhusikult pillatud lausete järgi saab aru aeg-ajalt, et tema elus on juhtunud ka suurepäraseid asju ja ta on kohtunud väga toredate inimestega, aga sellest ta ei räägi. Selles mõttes jäi minu jaoks veidi ühepoolseks. ( )
