Ryan Knighton

Ryan Knighton is the author of the critically acclaimed Cockeyed: A Memoir, which was published around the world and is in development as a major motion picture. His comic essays have appeared in Esquire, the New York Times, the Globe and Mail and Salon. At the age of eighteen Knighton was diagnosed with the degenerative eye condition retinitis pigmentosa and is now blind, which is blinder than he’d like to admit. He teaches English at Capilano University and lives in East Vancouver with his wife and young daughter.
