A Classic by a Remarkable Woman
At first it was a little strange, and seemed like poetry rather than a memory but the narrator does a splendid job of maintaining cadence that drawers you deeper into listening to Hellen Keller describe how she came to relate to the world. it's fascinating and you're left with renewed awe at the astonishing legacy she left and also makes you curious to go find a biography of Annie Sullivan, "teacher"!
