Listening is Hannah Merker's moving and evocative account of her passage into the world of deafness after a mid-life skiing accident. It is also her examination of the many ways people who cannot literally hear can listen and communicate. As Henry Kisor says in his foreword to this new edition, Merker learned how to pay attention to the world both without and within her. Hers has been not so much a struggle to grasp the remnants of her hearing as it has been an intellectual adventure into the nature of sound. First published by Harper Collins in 1994.From the Publisher:
An acclaimed personal odyssey by a hearing-impaired woman that follows her search for new ways to "listen" to the world around her.
