In the interview between author and subject that follows this amazing biography, visually challenged Mike May talks about audiobooks. The best ones, he says, are those that are great books in and of themselves, coupled with narrators who are so seamless they become invisible in their delivery, leaving the listener with the unfettered greatness of the work. That is exactly what Christopher Evan Welch does as he recounts May’s journey from going blind at age 3 to having partial vision restored in his 40s. The story itself is inspiring, and Kurson asks all the right questions about what it means to see and to lead a full life. Welch is the icing on the cake, taking the listener on the wild ride of May’s life, capturing the roller-coaster emotions, struggles, and triumphs of May and those close to him. H.L.S.
