A NovelBook - 2006
A road trip across America and a story about language, love, and identity. The first time Bridger saw Dana- she was dancing barefoot, her body throbbing with rhythms and cross-rhythms that only she could hear. He was mesmerized. That night they were both deaf, mouthing to each other over the booming bass. It was not until their first date that Bridger learned that her deafness was profound and permanent--by then, he was falling in love. Now she is in a courtroom, accused of assault with a deadly weapon, auto theft, and passing bad checks, among other things. Clearly there has been a terrible mistake--a man has been living a life of criminal excess at Dana's expense. And as Dana and Bridger set out to find him, they begin to test to its limits the life they have started to build together.--From publisher description.
