I love reading Deaf memoirs. I enjoy exploring the similarities and differences between all the authors' experiences. Here are some of my favorites.

Sounds Like Home: Growing Up Black and Deaf in the South by Mary Herring Wright

I'll Scream Later by Marlee Matlin

and Mean Little Deaf Queer by Terry Galloway

Has anyone ready any of these? What did you think of them? Did you gain any insights from them?

Have you read any other Deaf memoirs?

A penny for your thoughts by Penny Harland is an autobiography about someone who's deafblind who completed university.

In the second autobiography by Sally Hobart Alexander, On My Own: The Journey Continues, the author recounts experiencing hearing loss (on top of blindness).
