Product Description

Used Book in Good Condition

Imported from USA

In 1959, the year Terry Galloway turned nine, the voices of everyone she loved began to disappear. No one yet knew that
an experimental antibiotic given to her mother had wreaked havoc on her fetal nervous system, eventually causing her to
go deaf. As a self-proclaimed "child freak," she acted out her fury with her boxy hearing aids and Coke-bottle glasses
by faking her own drowning at a camp for crippled children. Ever since that first real-life performance, Galloway has
used theater, whether onstage or off, to defy and transcend her reality. With disarming candor, she writes about her
mental breakdowns, her queer identity, and living in a silent, quirky world populated by unforgettable characters. What
could have been a bitter litany of complaint is instead an unexpectedly hilarious and affecting take on life.
