A room called earth / Madeleine Ryan.


"As a full moon rises over Melbourne, Australia, a young woman gets ready for a party. She is autistic, yet within her mind, she is whoever she wants to be. What appears to an ordinary night out is--through the prism of her singular perspective--extraordinary. As the evening unfolds, each encounter reveals the vast discrepancies between what she is thinking and feeling, and what she is able to say. And there's so much she'd like to say. So when she meets a man and the possibility of intimacy and genuine connection occurs, it's nothing short of a miracle. However, it isn't until she invites him home that we come to appreciate the humanity beneath the labels we cling to, and we can grasp the pleasure of what it means to be alive" -- From publisher.
