From Reference & Research Book News

Heuer takes on the shifting boundaries caused by small slides as well as earthquakes between hearing, deaf and Deaf culture, including the reasons for bias, disdain and assumed superiority. In vignettes that come from ground-level real life rather than from on high his commentary is hilarious as well as wise. His material on passing from one culture to another constantly is based primarily on his personal experiences and observations but he relates to all readers, whether or not they consider themselves ordinary.

Christopher Jon Heuer is a professor in the Department of English at Gallaudet University.
