Narrating this touching memoir about a visually impaired writer who hid his disability from others, Curtis Armstrong demonstrates impressive dramatic skills and vocal range that capture the pathos in the story. His engagement with Hill's authentic writing makes listening absorbing. Hill has only peripheral vision and offers gripping accounts of his early struggles to do normal things without making his impairment obvious. But hiding his disability distorted who he was, separated him from others, and, in many ways, kept him from fully knowing and accepting himself. This is inspiring blow-by-blow reportage on how one artist did the internal work necessary to connect with people more honestly and learned to trust what he was offering the world as a writer. Armstrong's equally inspiring performance makes the author's journey a captivating listening experience. T.W. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2022]
