On his eighteenth birthday Ryan Knighton was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa, a congenital, progressive disease marked by night-blindness, tunnel vision and, eventually, total blindness. Blending mordant wit with intense personal reflection, Cockeyed is the story of Ryan's loss of sight. We follow his journey from absolute denial - which lost Ryan his trousers, his girlfriend and, perhaps unsurprisingly, his driving licence - to acceptance of life without vision and reliance on a cane. Ryan Knighton's irreverent memoir makes us discover our surroundings afresh, and reminds us that even the most ordinary things have extraordinary and precious qualities.
