Take a journey into the forbidden - the erotic, the remote, the uncharted.
Slade Steadman has written one of the most famous travel books ever. But he has been unable to write anything else for thirty years. A journey downriver in a remote eastern province of Ecuador among the Secoya Indians gives him the experience he has been seeking - and a miracle drug. He returns to the USA with the drug, which induces temporary blindness. He is energized - able not only to write and remember, but granted an almost uncanny prescience, bordering on second sight.
A dazzling and disturbing story of revelation and creativity, Blinding Light is a tour de force from a writer at the height of his powers.
