Tony Deblois - Biography by Antonia Felix

Some Kind of Genius: The Extraordinary Journey of Musical Savant Tony Deblois |BUY|
Co-written with Janice DeBlois
Rodale Press 2005

The much-anticipated biography of the famous prodigious savant

Some Kind of Genius: The Extraordinary Journey of Musical Savant Tony Deblois, which I co-wrote with Tony.s mother, Janice DeBlois, was released by Rodale Press in 2005. Meeting and getting to know Tony was a life-changing experience. A classically trained pianist who primarily plays jazz today, Tony stands out among the rarest prodigious savants with his ability to compose music as well as perform pieces after hearing them only once.

Every step of Tony.s life.from his premature birth and struggle with autism and blindness to his graduation from the Berklee College of an amazing journey in itself. I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to interview the world.s leading expert on savants, Darold Treffert, M.D. (, for this book. Dr. Treffert, who was the consultant for the film Rainman starring Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise, is close to Tony and his family and provided me with fascinating details about the savant syndrome in general and Tony.s case in particular.

I also spoke with many of Tony.s piano and music teachers who described his unique style of learning the keyboard, remarkable ability to replay complex pieces after one hearing, and much more.        
The heart of the story, as Tony.s teachers attest, is the role that music played in bringing Tony out of his shell and developing his ability to communicate with the world.

Janice and I are very proud of this book and hope that it will bring new insights to parents of autistic children and intrigue everyone interested in savant syndrome, music and extraordinary people.
