February 5, 1992 | DAVID GRITTEN, SPECIAL TO THE TIMES; Gritten is a London-based writer.
Stephen Wiltshire places a drawing pad on the arm of a sofa, and begins to sketch, deep in thought and immune from distraction. He has been asked to draw any building he remembers from a recent visit to Los Angeles and he embarks upon his task enthusiastically. After only four minutes he holds up the result of his labors. It is a pen-and-ink sketch, a little crude in execution, but immediately recognizable as the cylindrical towers of the Bonaventure Hotel. He doesn't recall the name.

This time around, Sacks had coined the word "neuroanthropologist" to describe his field trips away from the hospital to observe the subjects of these tales in their natural habitats.
