IN THE COUNTRY OF THE BLIND.
Edition: Advance Reading Copy (trade paperback format. )
New York: Arcade Publishing, (2016). First edition - The 25th book by this award-winning author, published 60 years after his first. Set in the 1970s in far northern Vermont, this is the story of a 46 year old former stockbroker, going blind at age 46, who is living in a farmhouse near a hippie commune and bordering an old smuggling trail, not used to move drugs across the border. It is about learning to adjust to life with limitations, to be able to rely on the kindness of others, and is made more poignant by the fact that Hoagland himself has been dealing with diminishing vision for more than 10 years, 184 pp.
Condition: Fine in glossy illustrated wrappers.
