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.
