Oh Just Keep an Eye on the Baby, Won't You?

Is being a new father tough? Try raising a child as a blind man.

Ryan Knighton, who is creating quite the genre for life through the eyes of a blind man — in print, blog and Twitter form — offers C'mon Papa, just in time for that gift-giving gala, Mother's Father's Day. Perhaps the most magical of all the literary tricks he pulls is the one that relocates the reader from the mental space where one wonders how a blind man types, to the space where s/he is overwhelmed by how he tells his story so well, a sorta second memoir, after Cockeyed.

And now we wait to see where the third volume of the memoir takes us.
