Exiting Nirvana by by Clara Claiborne Park Summary and Exiting Nirvana is a luminous, moving story about the making of a self and what it means to be human, an account Jessy s mother must tell for her, since she cannot tell it for herself But most of all it is a remarkable story of growth, not only in Jessy but in everyone who has EXITING NIRVANA A Daughter s Life with Autism Thirty four years after The Siege, Park s account of her autistic daughter s first eight years, she delineates Jessy s journey from being a barely verbal child to an adult fascinated with language Exiting Nirvana A Daughter s Life With Autism Exiting Nirvana is the story of a mother and daughter s journey toward manufacturing personhood in an individual for whom being a person in an interpersonal and interactive sense is not a natural part of her being Park not only describes the monumental efforts to achieve this end but also confesses her doubts, at different stages of Jessy s Exiting Nirvana A Daughter s Life With Autism Rain Taxi That is why Exiting Nirvana, like Kenzaburo Oe s A Personal Matter, has become so important to me Forbearance may be the key to living with autism and perhaps the key to living itself Forbearance may be the key to living with autism and perhaps the key to living itself. Exiting Nirvana SparkAction Exiting Nirvana is the story of how Jessy s family, friends, housemates, doctors and teachers have all coaxed her out of Nirvana to spend and of her time in this messy, less than satisfactory world.

    1. Jessy Park s mom dubbed her daughter s autistic world, Nirvana, for its unreality and her immersion into a dream like state The book itself has some dream like qualities At times, I found the writing so calming, but yet with a nice rhythm I thought I would escape into my own state of nirvana A strange thing to say about a book about a subject like autism I wish I would have taken care to mark some of these passages because there are better ones, but here is a sample that will give an idea of wh [...]


    2. The description of this book doesn t really do it nearly enough the justice it deserves I found it incredibly enlightening to read The way her mother describes her daughters autistic habits is amazing, because it really enables you to have some kind of understanding of what it must be like I think after reading this I have a new understanding of people with autism and how challenging the every day can be, as well as how I could possibly make things easier, especially after having previously look [...]


    3. A moving tale of a mother s and father s, sister s, brother s work with an autistic child, who finally was accepted by public school and with huge energy input by school, neighbors, and extended family grew up to be an accomplished artist, participating family member, and mostly a delightful person.


    4. I originally wrote this Feb 25, 2008, but mistakenly posted it as a comment.The problem I had with this book is, Park tends to emphasize her daughter s deviance and abnormality instead of just seeing her as a person Wrong, lady your daughter is human Autism doesn t make a person less human.I usually don t hold with person first language like person with autism as if it were some disease , but I could have used a little of that spirit in this book It s possible that she doesn t actually think of [...]


    5. Clara Claiborne Park writes an informative piece on life with an autistic child adult My friend, Marcia, recommended it knowing that I love to read about different topics but at a level that the normal person can comprehend Park does a good job painting a picture of Jessy and how she thinks It gives the reader another side to the life of an autistic person and their family I was impressed with the efforts of the family to educate Jessy, to give her normal life jobs, etc They raised an extremely [...]


    6. This is the excellent follow up book to Clara Claiborne Park s The Seige which I read a few weeks ago Both books chronicle her daughter Jessy Park s autism and her many accomplishments as well as the very weird and often very annoying traits common to most autistic people In this book, Jessy is now an adult, holds a job, and is an artist whose very detailed paintings are widely sold But she is still autistic and still lives a life that is very regimented and quirky and she still has difficulty w [...]


    7. This book was difficult to follow, often the writing did not seem complete Some of it may be due to the fact that Parks writes in Jessy speak I am wondering if I had read the first book The Siege if this book would have made sense It wasn t until half way through the book that I began to see that Parks was showing the reader what life with Jessy was like rather than who Jessy is.


    8. This was a really interesting book that shared the life of a woman with autism It gave great insight into her growth and development over the years Her mother was an amazing note keeper and kept so many details that the book really caught the important and extraordinary aspects of Jessy s life I really enjoyed the book.


    9. This is a well written, almost lyrical book about a woman who doesn t understand lyrical and wouldn t like it if she read it It s written for non autistic people who want a glimpse into what it might be like to be autistic, and what it is like to live with a profoundly autistic person Rainman got it right, apparently I enjoyed this book immensely.


    10. Very fascinating Very good Even though there were some parts that were hard to get through, I couldn t put it down There were parts that were too text bookish for me and other parts that were just so bizarre, as autism is.


    11. A thoughtful book by a mother about her 40 some yr old autistic daughter The mother writes about the stages of the daughter s learning how to live in the world with other people in a useful not too troubling way I learned a lot.


    12. I liked this book It was well written and it had a good story I liked the first chapter of this book It had cute pictures in it.
