In American Sign Language, "train go sorry" means "missing the boat." Cohen uses the phrase as shorthand for the myriad missed connections between the deaf and the hearing. Yet in this stunning work of journalism and memoir she also forges new connections. As she ushers readers into New York's Lexington School for the Deaf, Cohen (whose grandfather was deaf and whose father was the school's superintendent) conveys the intimate truths of this silent, but immensely articulate world.
"Eloquent...a stunningly empathetic examination of [deaf people's] stories and a brilliant narrative of Deaf culture."--The New York Times Magazine
