Goods made by the Blind

Aside from appealing to one’s charitable instincts, I wouldn’t think this to be a ringing endorsement…

    One of my favorite books, is The Blind Assassin. I read it, liked it so much I read it again straightaway. That was one of the stories that the pulp writer who dies in WWI tells his lover (the narrator, or was that her sister who drives her car off a bridge)?

    I love The Blind Assassin, and I’ve read it twice as well! In fact, if I didn’t have a backlog of Victorian novels to work through, I’d be delighted to read it again now

    Yes it is from the Sci-Fi story told by the pulp writer–but don’t give away the ending!
