Frank Bruni’s Memoir Offers a Playbook on Finding Silver Linings: “I went to bed seeing the world one way. I woke up seeing it another.”

From a Washington Post story by Steven Petrow headlined “Frank Bruni’s memoir offers a playbook on finding silver linings”:

One morning in the fall of 2017, Frank Bruni woke up unable to see out of his right eye. During the night, the journalist, then 52, had suffered a rare kind of stroke that ravaged one of his optic nerves and left him with a thick fog across the right side of his vision. A few days later, a neuro-ophthalmologist warned him, “You know that this could happen in your other eye.” Bruni asked what that risk might be. “About a forty percent chance,” came the answer.
