9780983629429: A Thousand Voices

A Thousand Voices is a memoir of the remarkable relationship between a young, single woman and the wild, beautiful deaf boy who, for a time, took the place of the son she'd lost. She stands by him through the travails of his adolescence, his search for his place in the world, and his final fight for his life. Her book is a song of love and grief and a profound meditation on the limits--and limitlessness--of human language.

From the Author:

The most interesting question I've been asked in the readings I've given of A Thousand Voices is "When did you know this deaf boy, Carlos, trusted you?" The question touched me. It was perceptive, taking me as well as those in attendance, to a deeper level of the book. I was moved because I knew Carlos had trusted me, but as I stood there, I realized I had honored that trust. And the moment of knowing of his trust. It was when he boarded a plane in his hometown of Ogden, Utah and flew two thousand miles alone to where I was in Montreal. He was very young and slight, he couldn't easily be understood, and he was traveling alone. And he needed to leave behind some trouble he'd had. A big identifying halter had been put on him and when I saw him step off that plane with his name strapped across the front of him, vulnerable yet confident in me, I knew we'd be friends for the rest of our lives.

From the Inside Flap:

"Again I was still, watching in my mind the ancient human struggle of a boy coming to understand himself, and to move beyond his limitations. It was all against the odds for Carlos, yet triumph is the word that most comes to mind in thinking about his life. Without having heard language, he was a phrasemaker. Without having had an advanced education, he became sophisticated in the most wonderful sense of the word. Without having had health, he lived fully and deeply. Without having had a merciful life, he was compassionate. Without having  money, he brought riches. With so much to endure, he did endure."
