This book began with a visit to Tibet's first school for the blind and Sabriye Tenberken, the remarkable blind woman who founded it. Those familiar with Rosemary Mahoney's previous work (Down the Nile; The Early Arrival of Dreams) will not be surprised that this intrepid journalist would not simply splice together a story and leave. Instead, this National Book Critics Circle Award finalist went to Tenberken's international training center in India and spent three months teaching blind adults. Her account is a fine example of what "immersion journalism" can be even in the most remote locales. Editor's recommendation.
