Terrible Gifts. "Out of Darkness: A Memoir" by Zoltan Torey. [review]
The ‘secret’ world of the blind person is one that this autobiography goes to considerable efforts to make real to the sighted person. In this respect, an autobiography of a blind person is almost a paradigm for autobiography itself: a representation of a subjectivity that cannot be perceived, but must be narrated nevertheless. Torey’s book, then, is a gift, and one that we should look at closely.
