Description

  • Used Book in Good Condition
  • 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.
