      What the book is about:

      Friends and family. Restaurants and recipes. Hobbies and history. TV programs the author loved when he could still see and music he enjoys. The schools he attended and the two university degrees he attained. The career that eluded him and the physical problems that challenge him. And books, books, books: over 230 of them quoted from or reviewed. All in all, an astonishing work of erudition and remembrance.

      David L. Faucheux lives in Lafayette, Louisiana.

      “I just finished David Faucheux’s Across Two Novembers. I enjoyed its quirkiness as it wound through a variety of topics, not least the intersection between blindness, chronic illness, food, and the Louisiana zeitgeist. I also enjoyed the editor’s notes.” — Peter Altschul, author of the following two books: 1. Breaking Barriers: Working and Loving While Blind 2. Breaking It Down and Connecting the Dots: Creating Common Ground Where Contention Rules
