Came across this article about the portrayal of people with Autism in fiction and how it feels sometimes that including a character with Autism serves as a plot device.
I came across the article shortly after reading The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon,
which does not suffer from treating autism as a prompt for exploring life twists. A delightful book!
