    There is a reason why this lady teaches writing classes at a community college not literature or disabilities studies at a bigger college or a university and that reason (well, I guess it's two reasons?) is that she has no idea how literary texts actually work (she says, for example, that the use of symbolism in literature is a sign of the author having AS *gasp* IKR? use of symbolism is one of the [few] things that help us tell the difference between literary and non-literary texts) and, what's [...]

Brown found that writers with Asperger’s had the ability to stay focused on the writing task for long periods of time; that they frequently had a hard time physically get [...]

    Very interesting way to understand both the autism spectrum and literature. Too often literary critics see writers as super-human beings fashioning literature out of an infinitude of choices, but it's possible they are just people struggling to communicate with what they have got. I especially enjoyed some of the biographical information about Hans Christian Anderson, WB Yeats, and Herman Melville.

    A very good book that explores writing techniques used by writers suspected to be on the autistic spectrum such as problems with character depth, character emotions, difficulties developing phot and theme, and authors' skill using detail and working from detail outward, rather than from outlines. Very useful. I would read this again.
