About this book


‘Through thoughtful juxtapositions in modern French fiction, Thompson posits text as both a material and critical encounter in order to celebrate blindness and topple stereotypes. Masterful analyses demonstrate the eloquence of “blind” narrative in cultivating the pleasure of the unexpected and shaping representation in Western traditions.’ — Tammy Berberi, Associate Professor of French, University of Minnesota, Morris, USA
