At the age of thirty-four, Gerald Shea discovered that he had been partially deaf since childhood, yet somehow managed to navigate his way through Andover, Yale, and Columbia Law School, and to establish an international legal career. Shea had compensated… for his deafness through sheer determination and an amazing ability to translate the melody of vowels. His experience gives fascinating new insight into the nature and significance of language, the meaning of deafness, the fierce controversy between advocates of signing and of oral education, and the longing for full communication that unites us all. 2013.
