A driver waiting at a red light suddenly becomes blind. So does his wife and the doctor who examines them. They are the first cases of an epidemic of blindness. A magnificent parable of loss and disorientation, a vivid evocation of the horrors of the twentieth century, and a terrifying allegory of the dark times of the new millennium, Blindness masterfully portrays man's worst appetites and weaknesses and man's ultimately exhilarating spirit.
