It isn't easy trying to succeed as a Deaf person in the arts. I work in the business/legal side of the theatrical trade, so it's been a different road for me. But I know some amazingly talented actors, writers, dancers, filmmakers, etc that are unfortunately starting out at a disadvantage simply because they're Deaf.
I start off my review with this because I feel it's important to point out. Marlee Matlin "made it", but her book clearly shows that it wasn't easy. She has faced opposition from both the hearing and Deaf communities. Yet she has continued to work on her craft.
There were a few parts of the book that were a little clunky and didn't flow into beautifully lyrical prose, but that made the book more real to me. As if Ms. Matlin had a hand in writing the book rather than simply leaving it fully to a ghost-writer. That's just my opinion and I'm sticking to it.
I really enjoyed that the Kindle edition included all the pictures (albeit at the end of the book rather than interspersed throughout).
