A love story like no other, 'Wish' is an entrancing and strikingly original novel which tells the story of John James (JJ). Born to deaf parents, JJ has always been more at home in Sign language than in spoken English. Through his work as a Sign teacher, he meets the beautiful, sensitive and highly intelligent Eliza and is drawn into a bizarre chain of events . . .
Woven into the very moving romance of 'Wish' are brilliant explorations of the nature of language, the power of the unspoken word, the ethics of scientific experimentation and the meanings of love.
