Look Me in the Eye: My Life with Asperger's by John Elder Robison. A fascinating book. Robison is the older brother of Augusten Burroughs, author of Running with Scissors. Burroughs' book was so troubling to me that I offered to give it away to the first taker. It has come back despite that, so perhaps I need to re-read it. Robison would have had Asperger's Syndrome no matter the level of dysfunction in his family, but their implosion certainly didn't help.
I have a nephew with Asperger's so am very interested in reading about it, especially first person accounts from people with the syndrome. I also recommend anything by Temple Grandin and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time (Mark Haddon), which is fiction but wonderful.
The Women Who Raised Me: A Memoir by Victoria Rowell. Interesting book by a young woman raised as a foster child by several different women and the State of Maine. Despite many hardships and setbacks, she is a ballerina and an actor (though I have not seen her work on "Diagnosis Murder" and "The Young and the Restless"). Great story of strong women and how they love and support one another to make the impossible possible.
Both from the liberry!
