Cockeyed : A Memoir

Author(s): Ryan Knighton

Biography & Memoir

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. Ryan Knighton's irreverent memoir makes us discover our surroundings afresh, and reminds us that even the most ordinary things have extraordinary and precious qualities. Winner of the Stephen Leacock medal for Humour, Canada's national honour for the funniest book of the year.
