A memoir of blindness and listening rendered with a poet's delight by the author of the acclaimed Planet of the Blind.
Kuusisto delights in the sparkle of surprises. He and Corky walk into a glass shop in Venice. " 'Listen,' a woman said. I heard the hum of breath moving over glassshe was playing a glass flute! Wind and sunlight pressed through dark leaves. I was sweetly transfixed. This was a shy, unasked-for gift." Eavesdropping has a similar generosity.
