When she was nineteen, Nicole C. Kear was told she was going blind. Advised that she had only ten more years of sight left, Kear determined to spend them wildly—keeping her deteriorating vision a secret from most acquaintances and running away to join a circus. But it’s tricky to run forever, and with the birth of her children Kear finally came to accept her encroaching blindness.Now I See You is the story of this personal journey—you can read an excerpt of the memoir on The Cut. Kear will be in conversation at Strand Bookstore with Pushcart Prize winner Emily Raboteau (The Professor’s Daughter and Searching for Zion).
