Rate this:
At age 34, Gerald Shea discovered that he had been deaf since childhood despite somehow graduating from Andover, Yale, and Columbia Law School, and maintaining a prestigious international legal career. Shea's witty and candid memoir of how he compensated - through sheer determination and an amazing ability to translate the melody of vowels - brings fascinating new insight into the nature and significance of language, the meaning of deafness, the fierce controversy between advocates of signing versus those who favour oral education.
