|Signing in Puerto Rican|
From The Midwest Book Review’s library newsletter Wisconsin Bookwatch
Every country treats the deaf differently. Signing in Puerto Rican: A Hearing Son and His Deaf Family takes a new spin on American Sign Language as Andrés Torres, a hearing, capable individual hopes to give readers a walk into his culture as he is a member of a predominantly deaf Hispanic family. Stating that Deaf Latinos have their own take on deaf culture and his unique upbringing, Signing in Puerto Rican is a worthy addition to any memoir collection dedicated to the deaf.
Andrés Torres is visiting distinguished lecturer in the Department of Latin American and Puerto Rican Studies at Lehman College, City University of New York.
