Blindness

By Jose Saramago, translated by Giovanni Pontiero.

A driver waiting at the traffic lights goes blind: patient zero in a contagion of blindness that sweeps through a city.

The authorities isolate the blind in a mental asylum.

Blind thugs take over.

When all are blind, all the rules change.

What it is to be human must also change.
