John lives alone, and even preparing a simple meal, getting up in the morning, or going to work can be an ordeal. Then he meets Leda, an aspiring actress who works with him. Their story might be an ordinary one of accidental involvement deepening into love, except for one fact: John is both blind and Deaf. The drama of this book is the drama of small things writ large-a street that can take a dangerous wrong turning, the unexplained absences of those closest to you, the painful consequences of a misunderstanding by those who can see and hear. Everything is told from the point of view of someone who can neither see nor hear: this story of one man's triumph is also a haunting feat of the imagination.
