About the Author
Sarah Kurchak is the author of the memoir I Overcame My Autism and All I Got Was This Lousy Anxiety Disorder and has written about autism and mental health for publications including Time, The Guardian, and the Toronto Star. She is also a former personal trainer, has a blue belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and was the lead trainer and a professional competitor in the Pillow Fight League.
"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."--Steve Silberman
