What to Look for in Winter, Candia McWilliam (Jonathan Cape) FACT

The full title is What to Look for in Winter: A Memoir in Blindness. Candia McWilliam, an "insufficiently prolific" novelist, has taken an unflinching look at her life and written it up in this extraordinary book. In the past she had been asked ""Why don't your write your life story? No one would believe it."  And her response was "Well, that's why." It took the experience of blindness to bring her to a point where she did finally commit to writing this memoir. So that's a good thing come out of a bad thing. The writing is so wonderful I find myself re-reading whole pages just for the pleasure of the words on the page.
