Get a rare inside look at a virtually invisible population. Deaf writer Mark Drolsbaugh, who grew up hard of hearing, has brought together a group of 37 talented writers who share their remarkable stories and poems. Together, they shed light on the hard of hearing experience and what it means to be on the fence-hovering somewhere between the deaf and hearing worlds.

Stereotypes are smashed as each writer shares a unique perspective that may radically differ from the others. You'll find an ASL advocate in one chapter, while in the next there's a cochlear implant advocate. Don't let the diversity fool you; while no one is exactly the same, deep down we all share one common goal. Find it in this book. [Mark Drolsbaugh; (2007) 228 pages; soft cover]
