HELEN KELLER: Sketch for a Portrait

Without sentimental hyperbole, this portrait conveys the challenge of a life which denied all intellectual and many physical confines. Much of the material in based on Helen Keller's own story but Brooks, who knew her well in later years, fills in personal marginalia. The familiar events are here but perhaps what emerges clearly is the enormous curiosity and vitality, the extraordinary perceptions, and the people who shared her world.
