    PaperbackÅ Deaf Republic ePUB â deaf download, republic kindle, Deaf Republic PDFEPUBSimply brilliant This dark fable of a town under siege is a statement on our times The people of the town become deaf after a soldier shoots a deaf child at a public gathering The deafness here is purposeful though and a statement on how we can remain silent in the face of government atrocities and institutionalized biases Tragic yet filled with beauty this is a powerful book of poetry

    PaperbackÅ Deaf Republic ePUB â deaf download, republic kindle, Deaf Republic PDFEPUBThe linked poems in DEAF REPUBLIC glint like icicles against a stark background The light source a gentle insistent humanity in the face of tragedy In the space between sound and silence action and inaction the collection builds and re builds kindness in unexpected crucial ways Like a sacred text DEAF REPUBLIC offers new meanings each time I turn to it and turn to it again I’m convinced it holds a prayer inside it or is a prayer itselfThanks to the wonderful folks at Graywolf for the ARC
