About this book

In this elegant and thought-provoking memoir, Dawn Prince-Hughes traces her personal growth from undiagnosed autism to the moment, as a young woman, when she entered the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle and became immediately fascinated with the gorillas. By observing them and, later, working with them, Prince-Hughes was finally able to emerge from her solitude and connect to living beings in a way she had never previously experienced.

More than a story of autism, Songs of the Gorilla Nation is a poignant, beautifully written exploration of the rich landscape of human emotion and the ways we learn to love.

Media reviews

"Lyrical, redemptive [...] Songs of the Gorilla Nation is as much a rhapsody to gorillas as it is an anatomy of autism."
- The New York Times Book Review

"A primer on self-preservation and love."
- O Magazine

"Gorilla Nation proves Prince-Hughes is a great writer-and an inspiration to anyone searching for a voice."
- Seattle Magazine

"[An] affecting, thoughtful memoir [...] both delightfully quixotic and terribly sad. Although Prince-Hughes struggles with verbal and physical interactions, in print she finds touching eloquence and clarity."
- Publishers Weekly
