In Like Colour to the Blind, Donna Williams enters the most exposing and fragile realm of human interaction: her relationship and eventual marriage with someone with whom she can 'simply be', a relationship she terms a 'specialship'. But loving involves exposure, and to love she must expose the very things which protected her all her life - the masks she has hidden behind, the patchwork creations which stood in place of self. In Donna's relationship with Ian, a man with difficulties related to her own, we watch the two of them break through their rock-solid emotional barriers and dare to defy all the rules imposed by the autistic condition of 'exposure anxiety'. Their struggle is told with Donna's characteristic humour, insight and sense of fragility. Like Colour to the Blind is also the story of Alex, who was misdiagnosed as 'retarded' as well as autistic, and so gripped by 'exposure anxiety' that he has been virtually non-communicative all his life. Alex's fear of being left behind by Donna and Ian inspires him to push fiercely beyond the boundaries of his limitations and, in his own words, `to fly'.… (lisätietoja)

I was mesmerized by this book and stayed up most of the night to finish it. It gives an accurate accounting of how it is to live as an Autistic person and how they interact with others. Ms Williams tells of her life as it includes Ian, a male friend suffering from Autism and how the learn to relate to each other and to the world they choose to livein. It also is very honest in telling how we in society label as retarded and even worse names to such individuals with this condition. Because I have had 2 grandsons who are autistic, it was especially interesting to me to see inside of such a person, as my grandsons are unable to articulate as this author does. We all are blessed that Ms Williams is able to put into words her feelings and her experiences, and hopefully all readers come away with a new awareness of how quickly we judge others without knowing all of what that person is living with and learning how to cope. I had to keep reminding myself that this was not about multiple personality disorder, as some facets of the disease of autism creates personalities needed to function in the world, similar to the mental disorder of MPD. This is where the similarity begins and ends, as they are two different diseases/illnesses.
I recommend this book highly to anyone curious, in a relationship with or just needing more information on Autism. Donna Williams is not to be missed as an author and I am looking forward to more from her. ( )
