View Our Catalog||The Art of Being Deaf|
From Publishers Weekly
[The Art of Being Deaf is a] sensitive and thoughtful memoir ... Much of the book is devoted to McDonald’s conversations with people who had a significant role in her life, but she also includes a thoughtful layer informed by cultural portrayals in both fiction and nonfiction that are deftly interweaved with moments from her personal life. Although there are segments that will tug at a reader’s heart, this is no tearjerker; rather, it is a personal and informative look at “deaf lives as told by deaf people.”
Donna McDonald is a senior lecturer and convener in the Disability Studies Program in the School of Human Services and Social Work at Griffith University in Meadowbrook, Queensland, Australia.
