April's book is Blindness by José Saramago. A driver goes blind. An opthamologist tries to diagnose his distinctive blindness, but is affected before he can read the textbooks. It becomes a contagion, spreading throughout the city. Trying to stem the epidemic, the authorities herd the afflicted into a mental asylum where the wards are terrorised by blind thugs.
