Stories and Poems from an Autistic Mind

Inside Out:
Stories and Poems From an Autistic Mind

Mother Nature. War. Mental Health. The Afterlife. Mythology.

These are just some of the subjects of the poems of Russell Lehmann’s first book.  Diagnosed with high-functioning autism when he was 12, he has forged through, what seemed at times as endless, struggles beyond his own belief. Yet, he continued to overcome. Throughout his journey, he took solace in expression: through writing, deep discussion, and philosophy. Many of the challenges he faced are poured into the pages of this book. His story and poems will surely inspire any audience. It’s a daring, lucid exposé on the struggles of a life led inside out: of a life with autism.

Inside Out earned an Honorable Mention at the 2012 NY Book Festival and was awarded the 2013 INAPA award for “Excellency in Literary Arts”.
