    1. A beautiful and heartbreaking story. It's a fiction book SO real that you can see this group of friends as a family, and you in the middle signing away with them: "p-l-e-a-s-e, you look-look me, I'm like you-you".

    2. Book Report for Deaf Culture and Community, VCC Deaf Studies and ASL ProgramI decided to read and review the novel, Men with their Hands, by Deaf author Raymond Luczak, published by Rebel Satori Press in 2009.I first became aware of the author in 1993 with the publication of Eyes of Desire, A Deaf Gay and Lesbian Reader, which Luczak edited. I chose to read this novel because I had never before read a piece of fiction written by a Deaf author and because the subject matter was of great interest. [...]

    3. This novel has a rather broad sweep, with an ensemble cast of nuanced characters and a timeline covering about 25 years, beginning with the AIDS epidemic. The focus is on a community of deaf gay men in New York City: their loves, friendships, grief, loneliness, and comfort/discomfort with deafness. I was going to call it a coming-of-age novel, but I think it goes beyond that.As a hearing person, I appreciated how deftly author Luczak wove bits of information about Deaf culture into the narrative [...]

    4. A unique book because many of the characters are deaf. The author explains in an opening note that he has rendered ASL conversations as close as possible to the original, and this element was completely compelling. Whenever you have the opportunity to glimpse how another person organizes their approach to the world through language this is a rare gift. I always wonder how much of our world is shaped through the particular language we use to interact with each other. Here are characters right in [...]

    5. This book even as being a work of fiction opened up my eyes not only to a deeper understanding of deaf culture but helped me under gay culture a bit better. I loved the book, I cried, got mad, and rooted for the underdoge end was a bit, well I was a bit lost and I did kninda want to know about Frakie more but I loved it none the less. Great book!

    6. One of the best books I've ever read. The voice is so clear and vivid; it's can be a bit emotionally overwhelming in places, because you feel what they feel so intensely. But it's a good kind of hurt. I cried more than once.
