Hari KunzruTheroux describes Steadman's perceptual enhancement in prose that is fluent and often arresting. The figure of the blind man, as a mythic and poetic archetype, resonates throughout. As an exploration of the visual rhetoric that dominates Western thinking about creativity and knowledge, especially knowledge of self, Blinding Light is a bravura performance. Theroux is often very funny about the vanity and pomposity of his writer hero.
