[When a television] producer asked if I knew [Stephen Jay Gould], I had replied, "I've never met him, although we've corresponded. But nonetheless, I think of him as a brother."Oliver Sacks, On the Move: A Life (New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2015)
Stever, for his part, had written to the producer, "I desperately want to meet Oliver Sacks. I see him as a brother, but we've never met."
