Why Can't I Just Enjoy Things?

by Pierre Novellie

During a stand-up gig, Pierre received a heckle from a neurodiverse audience member which prompted him to investigate how his own brain worked and at the age of 31, eventually led to him being diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

The diagnosis unravelled his world, explained his struggles and answered questions he's had throughout his life: why were people in primary school obsessed with Britney Spears and not The Goon Show like him? Why would anyone do the washing-up little and often when they could go full 'Crime Scene Clean Up' for the entire day? And why on earth is everyone chewing so loudly? Through observational comedy, Pierre gives the reader an insight into the autist's brain and demystifies some of the daily quirks that those with ASD experience, whilst highlighting a general lack of education about the disorder.
