Product Details


"[Kuusisto] is a powerful writer with a musical ear for language and a gift for emotional candor. He has written a book that makes the reader understand the terrifying experience of blindness and that stands on its own as the lyrical memoir of a poet."
–Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

"The sheer beauty of Kuusisto’s writing creates a miraculous planet; a swirl of sensation and nuanced perception, ecstasy, terror and love.  Here a soul on a bicycle is propelled by pure desire.  And here we, in turn, are propelled toward a new vision."
–Andrea Barrett, author of Ship Fever
