Intricate Autism

Nicely balanced piece on a very tricky topic. The NY theater performance of
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
is hugely recommended (have not read the book).

BTW, Bruno Bettelheim has to qualify as one of the most-crashed intellectual stocks of my lifetime. Not quite all the way from saint to scumbag, but damned close. I loved the only book of his I had read before he died, The Uses of Enchantment, and now it’s ruined for me.
