Autistic author Donna Williams never knew what it was to feel her hand and her leg at the same time let alone experience herself and other person within one moment of processing. Nor did she know the difference between real felt communication and the push button learned 'talking doll' responses and caricatures that made up almost all of her so called 'purposeful' communication and actions with others.
Now, in her new relationship with Ian, an asexual man with 'multiple personalities' and somewhere on the Autistic Spectrum, finding out what is real from what is not becomes their life's quest.
With hilarious and reckless results they develop an NLP like strategy called 'checking' which appeals only to the feeling part of the brain and gets around stored learned responses. The results are that they throw out much of the household furniture, their clothes, the contents of the cupboards and then realize they want to be married (but fail to check that it is actually to each other!) so, within a two week very autistic marriage preparation, they recklessly marry one another.
