“Julia Rodas rejects ableist repertoires of what language is and can mean, notably the understanding that language necessitates understanding or intelligibility . . . readers are viscerally confronted with autism’s many possibilities, are given neurodivergent mechanisms through which to re-see Villette, Frankenstein, Robinson Crusoe, and more . . . What Autistic Disturbances offers is at once a method and a style for apprehending aesthetic autism, across genre and mode. This is an incomparable book, one brimming with ideas for how to reclaim autistic echoes in a morass of literary expression.”
—Melanie Yergeau, author of Authoring Autism

—Rosemarie Garland-Thomson, author of Extraordinary Bodies and Staring
“Replete with swerving insights, expostulations, and lists that … help us reimagine the full plentitude of the language of autism.”
—Lennard Davis, author of Enforcing Normalcy andThe Disability Studies Reader
