"On his 18th birthday, Ryan Knighton was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa, a congenital, progressive disease marked by night-blindness, tunnel vision and, eventually, total blindness. In this memoir, he tells the story of his fifteen-year descent into blindness while incidentally illuminating the wonderful strangeness of our own, sighted world." "Knighton learns to drive while unseeing; has his first significant relationship - with a deaf woman; navigates the punk rock scene and men's washrooms; learns to use a cane; and tries to pass for seeing while teaching English to children in Korea. Stumbling literally and emotionally into darkness, into love, into adulthood, and into truce if not acceptance of his identity as a blind man, his experience of blindness offers unexpected insights into the senses."--BOOK JACKET.
