‘Cognition is beautiful’
In the summer of 1983, just days before the birth of his first son, writer and theologian John Hull went blind.
In order to make sense of the upheaval in his life, he began keeping a diary on audiocassette. They were published in 1991 to critical acclaim. The neurologist Oliver Sacks describes the work as ‘the most extraordinary, precise, deep and beautiful account of blindness I have ever read. It is to my mind a masterpiece.’
With exclusive access to these original recordings, NOTES ON BLINDNESS encompases dreams, memory and imaginative life, excavating the interior world of blindness.
