a book to grab your heartstrings
It's hard to know where to start. Ms Walker tells a tale of good people who do good things, and get their hearts broken. A Loss For Words is the story of a hearing girl born to deaf parents before 'pc' came into being. Her memories of humiliation and triumph will change you-but you won't know why. Her stories of her parents' educations - and typical deaf schools' ways of educating - will shock and horrify you, but still, strangely, give you a warm feeling in your heart. There aren't many 'bad' people in this book...only smelly,loud, or closeminded ones. I loved it. It disconcerted me, depressed me, and made me want to read it again and again.
