Synopsis:
A city is struck by an epidemic of "white blindness" which quickly runs rampant. Authorities confine the blind to a vacant mental hospital under armed guard. There, chaos reigns. Finally, the compound is set ablaze and its "inmates" escape into a deserted city littered with corpses. The only witness to this nightmare is a doctor's wife who faked blindness to join her husband in the camp. Blindness is a stunning novel of loss and disorientation in the modern world, and man's will to survive against all odds.
