"The acoustical patterning not only compelled their attention but it also redirected their 'enhanced discrimination skills,' allowing them to devote this energy, this auditory focus, to the project of deciphering meaning, though meaning wedded to the musical grammar, the reverberating word strings." Currently on leave from an English professorship at Grinnell College, Savarese is the author of Reasonable People: A Memoir of Autism and Adoption. His son is now in college.
