KIRKUS REVIEW

The conclusion to this writer's earlier I Wanted to See tells of her first weeks of total blindness after she returned home to try and live just as she had before. Her first missteps and mishaps; her attempts to get her bearings- guaging the water in a tub, learning the approach to a chair; her struggle to keep herself and her clean and well groomed; learning to dial, walk the stairs, and venture out. In the world: mastering the typewriter so she could continue to write (her profession since her threatened blindness forced her to give up teaching.)- These few pages of personal experience reveal her accumulation to a way of life which demands constant for-thought, and . Courage as well, since the ""fear of the unknown"" was the greatest g she . An , un-fpltying account, which will have its greatest value for others who must also adjust to sightlessness.
