Bella Bathurst - Sound : Stories of Hearing Lost and Found

Sound : Stories of Hearing Lost and Found PDF download
'By the summer of 1998, it had become clear that there was something wrong with my hearing. It didn't happen suddenly but softly, so softly I almost wasn't aware of it happening; sound seemed to have stolen away ...' For twelve years, Bella Bathurst's life was ruled by her deafness. She missed the punchlines and the jokes, avoided busy restaurants and raucous parties, grew her hair long to cover hearing aids, and retreated into herself. But then, twelve years later, pioneering surgery on her ears gave her the chance to hear again.Sound is the extraordinary story of Bella's journey into deafness and back to hearing. Mixing memoir with interviews with soldiers, sign language experts, musicians and mental health workers, Bella explores what deafness teaches us about listening and silence, and what the deaf know that the hearing don't.If sight gives us the world, then hearing - or our ability to listen - gives us each other. Published in partnership with the Wellcome Collection.Wellcome Collection is the free museum and library for the incurably curious. It explores the connections between medicine, life and art in the past, present and future. It is part of Wellcome, a global charitable foundation that exists to improve health for everyone by helping great ideas thrive.
