The Gift that Keeps on Giving

I am writing about a few friends of mine who all share vision issues. Through my Strabismus, I have come to meet many people with visual conditions and a few of them it turns out are incredible artists. Here they are:

Johnny Rozsa's book Untouched is amazing. Where else can you see Rick James poolside and Winona Ryder on a tractor? You can purchase it through Glitterati. While we met years ago in the Tompkins Square Park Dog Run, our first conversation was about our eyes. He is a wonderful photographer and one of a handful of people that make me laugh until my stomach hurts.

Katharine Weber's new book True Confections is absolutely wonderful. It is about a candy factory in crisis in New Haven, CT. I am enjoying it tremendously.
Lili Anel is a singer and songwriter who shares my condition, Strabismus. (Click on her name to hear her.) She has a beautiful voice and I love every song on her latest album. You can buy it here or on iTunes.
