When John Howard Griffin's sight returned after a decade of blindness, he had already had quite a life as a scholar of medieval music, a member of the French underground in Nazi-occupied France, an observer on an isolated Pacific island, an acclaimed novelist, a convert to Catholicism, and a family man. When his sight returned unexpectedly, he became a medical phenomenon. Scattered Shadows, first published posthumously in 2004, was praised by Library Journal for reminding us that "vision and sight are not synonymous."
