"As a young blind girl, Georgina Kleege repeatedly heard the refrain, “Why can't you be more like Helen Keller?” Kleege's resentment culminates in her book Blind Rage: Letters to Helen Keller, an ingenious examination of the life of this renowned international figure using 21st-century sensibilities. Kleege's absorption with Keller originated as an angry response to the ideal of a secular saint, which no real blind or deaf person could ever emulate. However, her investigation into the genuine person revealed that a much more complex set of characters and circumstances shaped Keller's life." -- publisher website (March 2007).

This was a wonderfully written, rich, scathing, funny, sympathetic book that introduced me to the idea of Disability Studies.

I really learned to understand the different facets of the author's blindness.

Also a refreshing, irreverent look at HK.

A fantastic book.
