Set on the eve of the Great War and spanning two continents, Deafening tells the story of Grania, a young deaf woman who falls in love with Jim, a hearing man. As the war explodes across Europe, Jim becomes a stretcher bearer, and through the years of separation, he and Grania attempt to sustain their love in a world as brutal as it is beautiful. With unparalleled grace and eloquence, Itani evokes a time and place where, even amidst the morass of war, love finds its own sublime expression.
