Train Go Sorry: Inside a Deaf World


Show Synopsis

This portrait of New York's Lafayette School for the Deaf is not just a work of journalism. It is also a memoir, since Leah Hager Cohen grew up on the school's campus and her father is its superintendent. As a hearing person raised among the deaf, Cohen appreciates both the intimate textures of that silent world and the gulf that separates it from our own.

Great Book to Learn More About Deaf Culture!

I enjoyed Leah Hager Cohen's book immensely. It chronicles her experiences in the d/Deaf world as a hearing person, who grew up at the Lexington School for the Deaf. The book covers a variety of topics including: d/Deaf education, cochlear implants and Cohen's experiences with interpreting. The book also tracks the stories of two students at the school.
I would recommend this book to everyone taking ASL and anyone interested in d/Deaf culture.

Extremely insighful

This extraordinary glimpse of life within the deaf community fleshes out the real meaning of the word "culture." It explains why many within the deaf community view educational "mainstreaming" of the hearing impaired as an attempt at cultural annihilation. The politics of deafness are far more complex than we in the hearing world realize. I am sharing this marvelous book with my friends.
