Front Cover

I really enjoyed reading Russell s autobiography and poems.
-Mark Haddon
Author of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time
- Darfur, Mother Nature, the Afterlife, Mythology. These are just some of the subjects that are included in the poems of Russell Lehmann s first book. Russell has high-functioning autism (not to be confused with Aspergers syndrome) which gives him a very unique perspective of the world. Diagnosed when he was 12, he has lived an extremely difficult life due to depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, severe anxiety and an eating disorder. Not to mention the ongoing discrimination his family and he have to go through just because he is different. Many of these challenges he has described in this book, along with poems that express his emotional opinions about them. His story and poems will surely inspire all who lay eyes on his words, while also shedding light on how difficult it really is to live with autism. A must read."
