Like The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, this is a fascinating voyage into a strange and wonderful land, a provocative meditation on communication, biology, adaptation, and culture. In Seeing Voices, Oliver Sacks turns his attention to the subject of deafness, and the result is a deeply felt portrait of a minority struggling for recognition and respect--a minority with its own rich, sometimes astonishing, culture and unique visual language, an extraordinary mode of communication that tells us much about the basis of language in hearing people as well. Seeing Voices is, as Studs Terkel has written, "an exquisite, as well as revelatory, work."

Skylar Brady has a for her life--until a car accident changes everything. Skylar knows exactly what she wants, and getting in a car accident the summer before twelfth grade isn't supposed to be part of the plan. Although she escapes mostly unharmed, the accident has stolen more than just her hearing from her: she's also lost the close bond she used to have with her brother. When her parents decide to take a house-sitting job halfway across the province, it's just one more thing that isn't going according to plan. As the summer progresses, Skylar begins to gain confidence in herself, but as she tries to mend her relationship with her brother, she stumbles upon another hidden trauma. Suddenly, she's keeping as many secrets as she's struggling to uncover and creating more problems than she could ever hope to solve.

In an exploration of a range of life-writing scenarios-from the celebrity to the ethnographicand a number of life-writing genres from parental memoir to literary case studies by Oliver Sacks, addresses complex contemporary issues, including investigation of the role of disability in narratives of euthanasia and exploration of the implications of the Human Genome Project for life-writing practices in any age when many regard DNA as a code that scripts lives and shapes identity. A concern throughout is the ethical implications of the political and economic, as well as the mimetic, aspects of life writing. [back cover].
