Clara Claiborne Park (au); Oliver Sacks (fr). In this moving memoir, Clara Park continues the story of her daughter Jessy. We see Jessy’s progressive journey out of her isolated “Nirvana” of autism into the world we all share. Jessy Park, now an adult, still struggles with language, with hypersensitivities & obsessions, & with the social interactions that ordinary people take for granted but that she cannot understand. She has grown into an accomplished artist -- her  paintings transfigure the ordinary world with the rainbow colors of Nirvana. More important, she has overcome her social handicaps enough to hold a job, becoming not a burden but a contributing, active member of her family & community. A luminous, moving story about the making of a self & what it means to be human. Ill.
