Summary:
"This volume examines the process by which three deaf, French biographers from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries attempted to cross the cultural divide between deaf and hearing worlds through their work. The very different approach taken by each writer sheds light on determining at what point an individual's assimilation into society endangers his or her sense of personal identity."--Jacket.
