Final Margaret or The Mistakes She Made
by Raymond Howard
Albert Duffel, middle-aged, going blind, finds himself at a crossroads when he meets Margaret, a nun searching for her mission in life. Believing Albert to be that saving grace—for who better to help than a poor blind man?—she takes him on pilgrimages to “see” the paintings at the art gallery, the dinosaur skeletons at the museum. She even gets them both lost in the park, a feat Albert could have easily accomplished himself. Yet he still finds himself fascinated with her, struggling between the duty to his wife and children and the tugging, romantic urges from misguided Margaret.
An unusual story, full of wit and wry humor, Final Margaret is a satirical look at the world of the blind.
