Description
The British literary sensation—"the most startling, discomforting, complicated, ungovernable, hilarious and heart-rending of memoirs " (The Telegraph)—the story of a celebrated writer's sudden descent into blindness, and of the redemptive journey into the past that her loss of sight sets in motion. Candia McWilliam, whose novels A Case of Knives, A Little Stranger, and Debatable Land made her a reader favorite throughout the United Kingdom and around the world, here breaks her decade-long silence with a searing, intimate memoir that fans of Lorna Sage's Bad Blood, Mary Karr's Lit, and Diana Athill's Somewhere Toward the End will agree "cements her status as one of our most important literary writers beyond question" (Financial Times).
