A Sorry Stick of a Man, Indeed ... And Other Short Essays on Deafness

ByTom Willard

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Tom Willard has been writing about the deaf community for 25 years. This collection, selected mostly from his work as editor of the national newspapers “Silent News” and “Newswaves,” offers a unique look at the issues and concerns of the American deaf community. Willard writes about advertisers who don’t caption their TV commercials, businesses that ignore their TTY phone lines for the deaf, Hollywood producers who hire hearing actors for deaf roles, hotels that disregard the Americans with Disabilities Act, relay operators who lack common sense and much more, in a book that is both entertaining and educational. At times funny, sad, thought-provoking, maddening and more, “A Sorry Stick of a Man” is perfect for students of deaf culture, sign language and interpreting and ideal for parents of deaf children, offering a rare glimpse into one of America’s most mysterious and misunderstood cultures.
