Dumb's protagonist Georgia lives the relatively carefree and ordinary life of a twenty-something in Montreal: working at a café, volunteering at a local bike co-op, and going out on the town with friends. But when a sudden unanticipated throat injury forces her into months of silence, her life is thrown into disarray. Unable to work her customer service job, she must find new income. Conversing with friends becomes complicated and exhausting. And she is forced to give up a hobby she loves -- singing. Navigating a world that appears to be closing in on her seems more and more impossible. Part memoir, part medical cautionary tale, Dumb tells the story of how the book's author copes with the everyday challenges that come with voicelessness.

The struggle of being voiceless.

JCLBryanV Nov 29, 2018

This is a startlingly original graphic memoir. Georgia Webber's account of how a rare voice infection derailed/reset her life and the challenges that came with learning to communicate without her voice is moving, horrifying and inspiring.
