Mother Father Deaf by Paul Preston

Book Description

"Mother Father Deaf" is the phrase commonly used within the Deaf community to refer to hearing children of deaf parents. These children grow up between two cultures, the hearing and the deaf, forever balancing the worlds of sound and silence. Paul Preston, one of these children, takes us to the place where deaf and hearing cultures meet, where families like his own embody the conflicts and resolutions of two often opposing world views. Based on 150 interviews with adult hearing children of deaf parents throughout the United States, "Mother Father Deaf" examines the process of assimilation and cultural affiliation among a population whose lives incorporate the paradox of being culturally "Deaf" yet functionally hearing.
