About the Book:
The Outside In View of Uncommon Bostonian: What an Autistic Black Woman Sees is the creative non-fiction book that shows the writings and art of Yvonne Christian, a Black woman who was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome in 2002. A few years after her diagnosis, she became a volunteer blogger of a daily newspaper that often published her posts in their printed editions. Unfortunately, the newspaper folded after their investors decided not to keep it going. Then, Yvonne decided to put all her blog posts in a book with her essays and paintings. The result displays her talents as a writer and artist as well as telling her story about her struggles with employment and emotional abuse. It also shows her love of pop culture.
