Wow. This book is stunning. Itani, a Canadian author, is absolutely amazing. I borrowed this book from a friend and have since purchased and devoured all of Itani's books. Her language is so incredibly rich and her stories so intimate and alive. This book truly brought the silence of deafness to life and wrapped it around me as I read the book. I still wear it is a coat. The characters, history, and place of this story are so intense that you find yourself lost when you finish the book because where you have gone and what you have experienced is so real. If you have not read Itani before you MUST read this book. A Canadian treasure to be sure!
