Description

Deaf since she was five years old, Grania has learned that watching is not always enough to survive in the world of the hearing. Sent to the Ontario School for the Deaf in Belleville, Ontario, Grania must learn to live away from her loving family. When Grania falls in love with Jim, a young hearing man from the East Coast, her life seems complete, but the First World War soon tears them apart and sweeps him into the worst of experiences?trench warfare.

Deafening is a deeply poignant love story set against the horrors of the First World War. At the same time, Itani’s depiction of a world where sound exists only in the margins is a singular feat in literary fiction, a place difficult to leave and even harder to forget.
