Library JournalArt critic and novelist Berger (G) provides another way to think about one of the mundane discomforts of aging—cataract surgery—in this charming, short meditation on the benefits of illumination (as provided by surgeons). He compares, whimsically, the dimming of his vision with his clarified post-op perceptions of light, color, tone, and scale, but illustrator Demirel’s evocative line drawings complement the brief text perfectly and elucidate Berger’s points in ways words cannot. VERDICT This quiet little book will appeal to thinkers and artists and anyone interested in “seeing.”
