Mean Little Deaf Queer
Mean Little Deaf Queer: A Memoir | Terry Galloway
2 posts | 2 read | 1 reading | 3 to read
Running with Scissors meets The Liar's Club in this edgy and wickedly hilarious memoir about one irrepressible mean, little, deaf queer. When Terry Galloway was born on Hallowe'en, no one knew that an experimental antibiotic given to her mother had wreaked havoc on her fetal nervous system. After her family moved from Berlin, Germany, to Austin, Texas, hers became a deafening, hallucinatory childhood where everything, including her own body, changed for the worse. But those unwelcome changes awoke in this particular child a dark, defiant humor that fueled her lifelong obsession with language, duplicity, and performance.

I'm a passionate reader and the books have suffered for it, their covers wavy from having been dropped in the tub, spines busted from being tossed on the floor, pages folded, creased, coffee-stained, and marked with ink.
