Om romaner med ett autistiskt perspektiv

A segment of a social network

”[…] novels of autistic perspective come to focus on the very social world that their narrators cannot se. We feel the awkward dynamics that swirl around Christopher and Oskar’s lives all the more intensely because they cannot be narrated directly. Reading a novel, of course, we always have to perform acts of decoding and mindreading. Normally the effort is as unconsciously second nature it is in real life. But when we’re faced with a narrator who can’t share the task, we have to face our own power – and its limits. What if we’re not so good at mindreading after all?”
