Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Imagine if the most severe physical pain and sorrow in your life were inflicted by the people you trusted most. In the spring of 2007, Belo Cipriani was beaten and robbed of his sight at the hands of his childhood friends.

Blind: A Memoir chronicles the two years immediately following the assault. At the age of twenty-six, Belo found himself learning to walk, cook, and date in the dark. Armed with visual memory and his newly developed senses, Belo shows readers what the blind see. He narrates the recondite world of the blind, where microwaves, watches, and computers talk, and where guide dogs guard as well as lead.

Praise for Blind

Belo Cipriani's account of profound loss is both riveting and suspenseful, as we traverse with him into a new world. — Amy Tan, author of The Kitchen God's Wife and The Joy Luck Club

Blind: A Memoir is a stunning read told in an unsentimental, self-deprecating voice that will change the way you see blind people — will change the way you see yourself. — Arthur Wooten, author of Birthday Pie: A Novel

Blind: A Memoir is a gripping story, beautifully told, about one man's bout with unimaginable adversity and his inspirational ascent from the depths. — Jane Ganahl, author of Naked on the Page

Blind: A Memoir makes an important contribution to queer and disability studies as well as being a rewarding experience for the general reader. — Susan Krieger, professor, Stanford University, author of Traveling Blind

With humor and passion, Belo journeys from darkness to light. — Jacqueline Berger, author of The Gift That Arrives Broken
