Blind poet Stephen Kuusisto's memoir is a wonderful, thought- provoking listen that combines poignancy and warmth in equal measures. When, at the age of 38, he is introduced to Corky, his first guide dog, his life changes forever. Narrator Fred Sanders's rhythm and pace make it hard to imagine that this is not HIS story. Sanders allows the narrative to unfold and gives listeners unique insight into the life of someone who, as a child in the 1950s, was taught to deny his blindness, only later to experience the true partnership a guide dog provides. The stories of Corky and the role of guide dogs and dogs in general make this a compelling listen. K.J.P. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2018]
