"Nothing links person to person like the frequent passage from hand to hand of a good book."

I had this book on my shelf for several years before finally getting around to reading it in 2010. For me, it is such a joy when an author can make a non-fiction book compelling enough to me that I read all the way through it, just as engrossed as if it were a novel. This book definitely fit that description. The story of the Lexington School, the students and staff, is really fascinating. As much as a person disconnected from the deaf community can, I feel that I gained some understanding of the trials of growing up deaf in a hearing family, and of the joy of being a deaf person surrounded by a supportive deaf community and culture. Ms. Cohen, a hearing person, was immersed in the Lexington School and the deaf community much of her early life, but she doesn't pretend to understand everything, which made her writing all the more credible. The history of the evolution of the deaf culture and of the various controversies within the deaf community and between deaf and hearing groups was also so interesting, and was skillfully woven in among other parts of the story.

A wandering book -- the karma of literature!
