Deaf Sentence: A Novel : The subject of enthusiastic and widespread reviews, David Lodge's fourteenth work of fiction displays the humor and shrewd observations that have made him a much-loved icon. Deaf Sentence tells the story of Desmond Bates, a recently retired linguistics professor in his mid-sixties. Vexed by his encroaching deafness and at loose ends in his personal life, Desmond inadvertently gets involved with a seemingly personable young American female student who seeks his support in matters academic and not so academic, who finally threatens to destabilize his life completely with her unpredictable - and wayward - behavior. What emerges is a funny, moving account of one man's effort to come to terms with aging and mortality - a classic meditation on modern middle age that fans of David Lodge will love.
