Steve Kuusisto is a very good writer. I learned a few things...for one, I didn't know that the term "disabled" came form Victorian age. I also liked the Greek perspective that beauty does not define the limits of passion. Clearly, we have created some "boxes" to limit our thinking about beauty.

I like what Steve Kuusisto writes also. His blog is Planet of the Blind - the link is in my sidebar.

David,

Are you familiar with Jimmy Liao's "The Sound of Colors"? It is a beautifully illustrated and written book about a young woman who has lost her sight (a year prior). We reviewed this book this week on our podcast "Just One More Book!":
