About the Book



An insightful memoir about growing up between the hearing and deaf worlds.



Book Synopsis



Myron Uhlberg was born the hearing son of two deaf parents at a time when American Sign Language was not well established and deaf people were often dismissed as being unintelligent. In this moving and eye-opening memoir, he recalls the daily difficulties and hidden joys of growing up as the intermediary between his parents' silent world and the world of the hearing.



Review Quotes




"A sweet, satisfying memoir about family bonds and finding one's place in the world."--Kirkus Reviews

"Like the spectacular memoir upon which this has been drawn, The Sound of Silence starts with magnificent force and control and never lets up. This is a moving, joyous, dramatic work of art, a gift of unusual understanding and grace."--Ken Burns, Academy Award-nominated filmmaker

"Myron's relationship with his father is at once complicated and touching, and his descriptions of signing, particularly his father's, are both educational and profound. An unforgettable story that opens hearts and minds to Deaf culture."--Booklist

"This book is a gem--full of wisdom, love, laughter...We live in a noisy world. Sometimes it takes a beautiful storyteller like Myron Uhlberg to remind us of the world's quiet and graceful charms. --Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Ali: A Life and Luckiest Man
