In her warm and witty memoir, Late Bloomer, Clem Bastow writes how her life was transformed after she was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder as an adult. Journalist turned academic Emma Jane’s candid and darkly humorous memoir Diagnosis Normal describes the many lives she lived with gusto before embracing a new life when she too had a late diagnosis of autism. Both books are funny, poignant and provide illuminating insight into the experience of living as a neurodiverse person in a neurotypical world.

Co-presented by Centre for Ideas, University of NSW.
