Kathy Buckley not only survived, but went on to become a top
female comic, award-winning author of a one-woman Off Broadway

In If You Could Hear What I See, Buckley tells her remarkable
life story, from her small-town childhood in Wickliffe, Ohio-where
she was unable to form words until age seven-to her incredible
career as "America's first hearing-impaired comedienne." In
chapters such as "I Can Hear the Laughter," "Confessions of a Deaf
Catholic," and "Table Manners with Anne Baxter," she shares the
pain and pathos of growing up hearing-impaired, the hope that has
sustained her through her darkest moments, and the humor that saved
her sanity. She talks about the people and events that changed her
life and encouraged her to dream. But most of all, If You Could
Hear What I See is about a woman who made a choice: to overcome all
the obstacles life could throw her way, and to meet those
challenges with dignity, courage, and laughter.
