Celebrated British novelist David Lodge is a two-time finalist for the Booker Prize and winner of the Whitbread Award. Deaf Sentence finds linguistics professor Desmond Bates forced into an early retirement by hearing loss. While at a noisy party, Bates politely says yes to a question he can't quite hear. Soon, he learns he's agreed to supervise a dangerously sexy undergrad on her suicide note research.
'Another wise, witty look at the human condition from Lodge.'
