Library Journal

Poetry, essays, short stories, and drama by hearing-impaired writers reveal that deafness is a richly textured world. The collection covers many topics, from audiology and the administration of a hearing test to the speech of the deaf transcribed as spoken English, offering details and information unfamiliar to most hearing people. The various authors compellingly utilize language to help the reader see more deeply and understand more profoundly the human condition, both in aspects particular to the deaf and in universal experiences shared by all. Not since the publication of Raija Nieminen's Voyage to the Island (Gallaudet Univ. Pr., 1990) has the silent universe been so dramatically explored. This landmark anthology deserves a wide readership. Recommended for all libraries.-- Nancy E. Zuwiyya, Binghamton City Sch. Dist., N.Y.
