Book Review: The Shape of the Eye

The Shape of the Eye by George Estreich

A few weeks ago, in my email inbox was an email from a man I’d never heard of before, asking me if I would be willing to read a book he wrote and recently had published, and to write a review on Book Lust. I still don’t know how he stumbled upon my book blog, and I was flattered that a bona fide author would think that anything I had to say about a book might actually carry some weight with anyone. Without hesitation, I agreed to read and review his book because I was flattered to be asked, because I like the idea of having any sort of contact with an actual author (being a wannabe writer myself), but mostly because the subject matter of his book is near and dear to me.

I have read numerous memoirs about having a child with Down syndrome. The Shape of the Eye is, hands down, the best one I’ve read . . . .

I’ve been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to interview the author of this wonderful book.  I will be posting that interview here next week, and will be offering the opportunity for three readers to receive a free copy of The Shape of the Eye, so please check back!

    I wasted a good opportunity! I’ll have to go and read the book if you believe it’s the best memoir relating to Down syndrome.

    I saw something about his book a few weeks ago. Now I can’t remember where but I wanted to read it at that time. Time to go to Book Lust and read your review . . .
