Full Face
(1997)
Claire H. Blatchford

What is it like to be deaf? How does it feel to lose your hearing in the middle of life? Where can you get help? How can you communicate with your own family?

Full Face is a conversation through letters between a middle-aged man trying to cope with recent hearing loss and a woman who has been deaf since childhood. Information about the condition is exchanged and suggestions are made for finding hearing aids and learning to read lips. The everyday ups and downs are laid bare, with stories and examples both funny and sad.

There is frank talk about the difficulties that accompany hearing loss. However, deafness offers hidden opportunities, the author suggests, when met "full face."
