Ved Mehta became blind as a boy in India, two months short of his fourth birthday, but for the next 30 years lived in the grip of a fantasy that he could see. After an education which included Harvard and Oxford, he travelled and wrote for the "New Yorker" magazine. Aged 20, he published his first book. Soon he had established himself as a successful author and young man about Manhattan. Blindness to him was no longer a problem. What he lacked, or so he thought, was love, sex and marriage. And so began a series of love affairs. "All For Love" recounts his relationships with four women and his search for self-understanding. The book is the ninth in Mehta's autobiographical series, "Continents of Exile".
