Reviews


"This book makes a powerful contribution to the developing interdisciplinary conversation about how disability shapes and is shaped by culture." --Eliza Chandler, Disability Studies Quarterly


"Deeply felt yet utterly unsentimental, More Than Meets the Eye is especially acute in its understanding of the challenges in bringing the visual arts to those who cannot see them, and in its celebration of those who create visual art in defiance of their blindness." --Martin E. Jay, University of California Berkeley


"More than opening up a world of blindness to the sighted, Kleege offers insight on how vision shapes the way we know and live together and how the experience of blindness yields distinctive knowledge and unexpected art that is available to us all...Along the way, we learn what it means to gain blindness, rather than to lose sight." --Rosemarie Garland-Thomson, Emory University
