About the Author

Sarah Kurchak is a writer and retired professional pillow fighter living in Toronto, Ontario. Her work as an autistic self-advocate and essayist has appeared in the Guardian, CBC Radio, and online on Medium, Vox, and Electric Literature. She is a graduate of the Humber School for Writers, and I Overcame My Autism and All I Got Was This Lousy Anxiety Disorder is her first book.

Reviews

"Sarah Kurchak is one my favourite autistic writers, but this highly engaging and thought-provoking book is much more than the typical memoir of growing up as an outcast in a world built for neurotypicals. With humour, compassion, and scintillating wit, Kurchak probes to the very heart of what it means to be a writer, while illuminating the struggle to define oneself in the face of people determined to enforce their own inadequate definitions. Her victory in growing up to become her own badass self is both an autistic victory and a universal human one, and everyone should read this book."
