Über diesen Titel:


The author explain how she became blind due to a rare optic condition and isolated herself from others, reflecting on her life, her family, and, in particular, her autistic brother, who had been forcibly separated from the family and sent to live in a mental institution as a child."

Rezension: Born into high society on the eastern shore of Maryland, Jacquelin Gorman's family was said to "have everything." But scratch away the paint from this 1960s family portrait and you'll find the oldest son Robin, who was sent away to a mental institution because of his autism when he was 12. In 1991 Gorman mysteriously went blind for 10 months. This heartrending memoir simultaneously defines and inspires resiliency. Rather than succumbing to terror, Gorman allowed her blindness to help her recall the love and memories of her brother that she had dutifully erased so many years before.
