More than thirty years after the groundbreaking publication of "Angels and Outcasts: An Anthology of Deaf Characters in Literature", Edna Edith Sayers re-envisions the anthology for the twenty-first century. In "Outcasts and Angels: The New Anthology of Deaf Characters in Literature", Sayers shows us the work of eminent and underrepresented deaf and hearing writers to encourage readers to come to terms with ingrained perceptions and biases towards the deaf. Sayers introduces three lesser known deaf writers: Charlotte Elizabeth (1790-1846), Howard Tracy Hofsteater (1909-64), and Douglas Bullard (1937-2005), but also includes luminaries such as Daniel Defoe, Flannery O'Connor, and Julian Barnes. Finally, Sayers features a global cast, including South African writer Nadine Gordimer, Danish writer Karen von Blixen-Finecke (writing as Isak Dinesen), and Lithuanian writer Juozas Grusas. "Outcasts and Angels" is sure to take its place with "Angels and Outcasts" as an insightful and important contribution to the field.
