Hands of my Father

The memoir Hands of My Father: A Hearing Boy, His Deaf Parents, and the Language of Love by Myron Uhlberg touches, cleanses, and leaves the reader richer. The book takes us to the world of the Uhlberg family during the Depression and lets us see a family that is made fun of and ignored – and yet also invites us to see their courage, love, and dignity.
