Review:

"An impressively daring first novel....Itani never loses control of her tricky material: the result is an artistic triumph."

Kirkus, 06/15/2003

Review:

"The pleasure to be found in Frances Itani's DEAFENING lies in its unshowy prose--a remarkable achievement given that large chunks of the novel feature the overwhelming battlefield horrors of the first world war....In a world filled with sound, Grania's story is a stirring reminder that human engagement occurs on various levels."

Lucy Beresford, Literary Review, February 2004

Book Description: Atlantic Monthly Pr, New York, New York, U.S.A., 2003. Hard Cover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. Frances Itani's lauded and award-winning American debut novel has been sold in sixteen countries, was a Canadian best seller for sixteen weeks, reaching #1, and has been awarded the Commonwealth Writers Prize Best Book Award for the Caribbean and Canadian Region. Set on the eve of the Great War, Deafening is a tale of remarkable virtuosity and power. At the age of five, Grania emerges from a bout of scarlet fever profoundly deaf, and is suddenly sealed off from the world that was just beginning to open for her. Sent to the Ontario School for the Deaf, Grania must learn to live away from her family. When Grania falls in love with Jim Lloyd, a young hearing man, her life seems complete, but WWI soon tears them apart when Jim is sent to the battlefields of Flanders. During this long and brutal war of attrition, Jim and Grania's letters back and forth-both real and imagined-attempt to sustain the intimacy they discovered in Canada. A magnificent tale of love and war, Deafening is also an ode to language-how it can console, imprison, and liberate, and how it alone can bridge vast chasms of geography and experience.
