    Kurzmeinung: A mesmerizing novel about a bestseller author who takes a drug that heals his writer's block but takes him on a dangerous inward journey...
    A mesmerizing novel about different kinds of blindness

    Long ago, Slade Steadman wrote his bestselling travel book "Trespassing" that made him a rich man. However, he does not know how to follow up on his success and his relationship with his girlfriend Ava is coming to an end. Together, they go for a trip to Ecuador where he discovers a mysterious drug that unlocks his creativity, apparently providing him astonishing insights into himself and other people, their innermost feelings and even their past... with the side effect of making him blind.
    Thus an astonishing inward journey starts that inspires Steadman to write another book - but is far more dangerous and leaves him with more blind spots than he thought...
    A spellbinding read, beautifully composed, though I was a bit disappointed by the main character. Slade Steadman seems to be only interested in himself and does not use his new talent for anything good other than living out his own erotic fantasies and writing a new book. However, he soon discovers that there are more than one form of blindness and not all are as glorious...
