On his eighteenth birthday, Ryan Knighton was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa, a congenital, progressive disease marked by night-blindness, tunnel vision and, eventually, total blindness. Blending mordant wit with intense personal reflection, "Cockeyed" is the story of Ryan's loss of sight. We follow his journey from absolute denial - which lost Ryan his trousers, his girlfriend and, perhaps unsurprisingly, his driving licence - to acceptance of life without vision and reliance on a cane. Utterly irreverent, this tour of our everyday world conducted by a wicked, smart, blind guy reveals the world of the sighted in all its phenomenal peculiarity. Ryan Knighton's memoir makes us discover the world afresh, and reminds us that even the most ordinary things have extraordinary and precious qualities.
