Summary
Blind since the age of seven, Nick Gleeson has spent his life learning to see without seeing. Growing up in the working-class Melbourne suburb of Broadmeadows, Nick's young life was defined by touch and smell: learning the shape of each shoe so he knew left from right. When Nick meets Peter Bishop, Creative Director of Varuna, the Writers' House many years later, he has led an amazing life of physical adventuring. He's scaled basecamp at Everest and the top of Kilimanjaro; he's been a Paralympic athlete, a marathon runner, a skydiver. And, most recently, he's been on an expedition to the Simpson Desert. In a unique blend of memoir, conversation and insights into the writing process, together Peter and Nick have collaborated to share Nick's compelling life journey with its many challenges, loves and losses
