Description

"Roger Shattuck's striking new edition of The World I Live In, a sparkling work too long obscured, renews Helen Keller for all generations--for the steadfast admirers of her art, and particularly for readers not yet acquainted with the sightless genius who taught the world the majesty of her insight. The World I Live In brings us intimately close, in her own valiant words, to the mind of a woman for whom language was life."
-- Cynthia Ozick

"While Helen Keller is better known for The Story of My Life, her later book, The World I Live In, is a warmer, more intimate and more beautiful work, one in which we encounter Helen Keller's remarkable imagination, her originality, and her power as a literary artist. She comes alive here, vividly and idiosyncratically, more than in any other of her writings."
-- Oliver Sacks

"An astounding account, enhanced further by Roger Shattuck's excellent introduction in which he explores the implications of her experience."
-- The Observer

"An affirmation of the fact that real miracles are the product of human endeavour and inspiration"
-- Times Educational Supplement (London)
