The Electricity of Every Living Thing

Author : Katherine May

Genre : Memoir

This was a random choice for me; I picked it up because I was intrigued with the title. It’s an especially helpful book to read for anyone who has dealings with or is raising an autistic child or grandchild. Katherine May is able to describe to the lay person exactly what she is experiencing in the world around her.

In anticipation of her 38th birthday, Katherine set out to walk the 630-mile South West Coast Path in England. She wanted time alone, in nature, to understand why she was having so much trouble coping with everyday life. She’s also reeling from a chance encounter with a voice on the radio that helps her realize she may be autistic.

In this book, besides exploring the coast, she also explores what she is learning about her autism and how she relates to the world around her. I’m not sure children who are diagnosed as autistic could articulate as she does what happens when she becomes overloaded and has to move to a secluded place.
