Book Description

A pair of items I wrote about autism — although they are still only a draft. One, Alice’s Evidence, looks at the relationship between Charles Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) and Alice Liddell, and marshals the evidence that Dodgson was not in lust after Alice, but rather was an autistic who formed an autistic friendship with her. The other, The Hidden Hall of Fame, looks at four great men (J. R. R. Tolkien, Dodgson, Isaac Newton, Stephen Foster) who may have been afflicted with “music and mathematics” autism and shows what they accomplished, and how we should understand such people. Much of the content of this book is now available in a revised, streamlined form, with additional examples, in "Alice’s Evidence: A New Look at Autism." This newer book also eliminates some of the duplications in "Looking Autism in the Face." For most readers, it is probably the better place to start.
