Description

ELEGANTLY WRITTEN and profoundly moving, Frances Itani’s #1 bestselling, award-winning novel is a tale of virtuosity and power. Set during the Great War and the 1918 flu pandemic, Deafening tells the story of Grania, a young deaf woman who falls in love with Jim, a hearing man, in their small Ontario town. As the war explodes across Europe, Jim becomes a stretcher-bearer, and through the years of separation, he and Grania attempt to sustain their love in a world as beautiful as it is brutal. Frances Itani’s astonishing depiction of a world where sound exists only in the margins is a singular feat in fiction, a place difficult to leave and even harder to forget.
