A Deaf Man’s Journey to Overcome Obstacles and Prejudice in a Hearing World

Quirky and irreverent, Willy Conley’s new book The Deaf Heart chronicles the life of Dempsey “Max” McCall, a Deaf biomedical photography resident at a teaching hospital on the island of Galveston, Texas, during the early 1980s. Max’s experiences, some humorous, some poignant, reveal his struggles and triumphs as he attempts to succeed in both the hearing and Deaf worlds.

“Willy Conley’s novel is rich and gripping, handsomely capturing the deaf aspect of human experience.” —David Hays, Founding Artistic Director of the National Theatre of the Deaf

See Willy Conley discuss The Deaf Heart in the book trailer.
