Sonic Neurologies: Sound and Schizophrenia in the works of David Foster Wallace and Richard Powers

I am currently working on how phenomenologies of 'schizophrenic' language and experience might clarify certain textual sound-effects heard through the writing of David Foster Wallace and Richard Powers.
