Odd Girl Out

by Ann Bannon, Odd Girl Out Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Odd Girl Out books, 2016 Reprint of 1957 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. Bannon is one of only a very few women who have written about being lesbian during the 1950s and 1960s. Her novels, all issued as paperbacks with ongoing characters, reflect the repressiveness of those decades and reveal how much needed to change. Bannon presents all the constraints that gays endured in the 1950's; the fear of sharing one's personal life one's coworkers, friends or even family because if could mean losing everything; and if the police were called, there was always the risk of jail. Laura Landon is a sheltered freshman at a fictional university in a Midwestern town. Intensely shy and introverted, she is drawn to the president of the Student Union, Beth Cullison. Beth is outgoing and friendly, experienced socially (with men, particularly) but feels a void in her life. She doesn't understand how the other girls are so fulfilled by the men in their lives, despite having tried. Every time she allows herself to be intimate with one, she breaks it off out of disappointment.

Odd Girl Out

by Laura James, Odd Girl Out Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Odd Girl Out books, A sensory portrait of an autistic mind From childhood, Laura James knew she was different. She struggled to cope in a world that often made no sense to her, as though her brain had its own operating system. It wasn't until she reached her forties that she found out why: Suddenly and surprisingly, she was diagnosed with autism. With a touching and searing honesty, Laura challenges everything we think we know about what it means to be autistic. Married with four children and a successful journalist, Laura examines the ways in which autism has shaped her career, her approach to motherhood, and her closest relationships. Laura's upbeat, witty writing offers new insight into the day-to-day struggles of living with autism, as her extreme attention to sensory detail -- a common aspect of her autism -- is fascinating to observe through her eyes. As Laura grapples with defining her own identity, she also looks at the unique benefits neurodiversity can bring. Lyrical and lush, Odd Girl Out shows how being different doesn't mean being less, and proves that it is never too late for any of us to find our rightful place in the world.

Odd Girl Out

by Laura James, Odd Girl Out Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Odd Girl Out books, What do you do when you wake up in your mid-forties and realize you've been living a lie your whole life? Do you tell? Or do you keep it to yourself? Laura James found out that she was autistic as an adult, after she had forged a career for herself, married twice and raised four children. This book tracks the year of Laura's life after she receives a definitive diagnosis from her doctor, as she learns that 'different' doesn't need to mean 'less' and how there is a place for all of us, and it's never too late to find it. Laura draws on her professional and personal experiences and reflects on her life in the light of her diagnosis, which for her explains some of her differences; why, as a child, she felt happier spinning in circles than standing still and why she has always found it difficult to work in places with a lot of ambient noise. Although this is a personal story, the book has a wider focus too, exploring reasons for the lower rate of diagnosed autism in women and a wide range of topics including eating disorders and autism, marriage and motherhood. Odd Girl Out gives a timely account from a woman negotiating the autistic spectrum, from a poignant and personal perspective.
