Notes On Blindness

In the summer of 1983, just days before the birth of his first son, writer
and theologian John Hull went blind. In order to make sense of the upheaval in
his life, he began keeping a diary on audio cassette. Upon their publication in
1990, Oliver Sacks described the work as 'the most extraordinary, precise,
deep and beautiful account of blindness I have ever read. It is to my mind a
masterpiece.' With exclusive access to these original recordings, NOTES ON
BLINDNESS encompasses dreams, memory and imaginative life, excavating the
interior world of blindness.
