""One morning, early in my struggle with AMD [age-related macular degeneration], I looked in the mirror as I was getting ready to shave and realized I wasn't there."" Filled with grace and good humor, My Friend, You Are Legally Blind: A Writer's Struggle with Macular Degeneration by Charles Champlin (George Lucas The Creative Impulse) is a brief foray into the author's lifelong love affair with books and how AMD has provided a detour but not a permanent roadblock in his continuing journey as a writer. Champlin, formerly a writer-correspondent for Time and Life magazines and then arts editor and principal film critic for the Los Angeles Times, is addressing others who have had to make similar adjustments in their lives because of macular degeneration and concludes his book with a list of helpful resources.
