By Katherine May

In August 2015, Katherine May set out to walk the 630-mile South West Coast Path. She wanted to understand why she had stopped coping with everyday life; why motherhood had been so overwhelming and isolating, and why the world felt full of expectations she couldn't meet. Setting her feet down on the rugged and difficult path by the sea, the answer begins to unfold -- when a chance encounter with a voice on the radio sparks her realisation that she has Asperger's Syndrome.

The Electricity of Every Living Thing tells the story of the year in which Katherine comes to terms with that diagnosis. Leading her to re-evaluate her life so far - with a much kinder, more forgiving eye. Her new understanding finally allows her to be different rather than simply awkward, arrogant or unfeeling. The physical and psychological journeys Katherine untertakes become inextricably entwined—as she finds her way across the untameable coast, she also finds her way back to her own true self.
