The grief of others : [a novel] by Leah Hager Cohen( Book )

23 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,722 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is keeping a secret from a spouse always an act of infidelity? And what cost does such a secret exact on a family? The Ryries have suffered a loss: the death of a baby just fifty-seven hours after his birth. Without words to express their grief, the parents, John and Ricky, try to return to their previous lives. Struggling to regain a semblance of normalcy for themselves and for their two older children, they find themselves pretending not only that little has changed, but that their marriage, their family, have always been intact. Yet in the aftermath of the baby's death, long-suppressed uncertainties about their relationship come roiling to the surface. A dreadful secret emerges with reverberations that reach far into their past and threaten their future
Train go sorry : inside a deaf world by Leah Hager Cohen( Book )

10 editions published between 1994 and 1999 in English and held by 1,498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Train go sorry" is the American Sign Language expression for "missing the boat." Indeed, missed connections characterize many interactions between the deaf and hearing worlds, including the failure to recognize that deaf people are members of a unique culture. In this intimate chronicle of Lexington School for the Deaf, Leah Hager Cohen brings this extraordinary culture to life and captures a pivotal moment in deaf history. We witness the blossoming of Sofia, a young emigrant from Russia, who pursues her dream of preparing for her bat mitzvah, learning Hebrew in addition to English and ASL. Janie, a history teacher who participated in the Deaf President Now movement at Gallaudet University, leads a field trip to the campus; there we experience the intense pride of deaf people who have won the battle for self-determination and leadership. And we feel the pounding vibrations of a bass line as James, a student from the Bronx, loses himself in the pulse of rap music as he dreams of life beyond Lexington's safe borders. As a child, Leah Cohen put pebbles in her ears as pretend hearing aids. Herself hearing, she grew up at Lexington, where her father is currently superintendent, and where her grandfather was a student. Animating the debate over the controversial push toward mainstreaming and the use of cochlear implants, Cohen shows how these policies threaten the very place where deaf culture and students thrive: the school. With her enormous sensitivity, Leah Cohen offers a story of the human will and need to make connections

Without apology : girls, women, and the desire to fight by Leah Hager Cohen( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and Swedish and held by 793 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the fall of 2001, Leah Cohen met up with four girls, ages ten to fifteen, and their female coach at the Somerville Boxing Club outside Boston. Over the course of a year, she grew close to them all - spending time at the old-style boxing club where they trained several times a week and at their homes, schools, and neighborhood hangouts. She learned about their families, the housing projects where they lived, their explosive friendships and steadfast loyalties, and especially about the damage that had turned each of them into a fighter." "Fascinated by the freedom the girls had in the ring, Cohen began training and sparring with them and their coach - only to find herself astounded by the strength and authority of her body, and by the way boxing opened up and brought clarity to her old issues about eating, anger, sexuality, and survival." "Without Apology is Cohen's account of what she discovered in the gym: about herself, about girls who box, and ultimately about the buried connections between femininity and aggression."--Jacket

A poignant novel about how secrets threaten the stability of a family. Late in her twentieth year, Beatrice mails a letter on the sly, sparking events that will change her life forever.

Her beloved father is accused of harassment by one of his graduate students; her usually composed mother shows vulnerabilities and doubt; and Bea is falling in love with a man more than twice her age.--From publisher description

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a tight, enlightening narrative, Leah Hager Cohen explores why, so often, we attempt to hide our ignorance, and why, in so many different areas, we would be better off coming clean. Weaving entertaining, anecdotal reporting with eye-opening research, she considers both the ramifications of and alternatives to this ubiquitous habit in arenas as varied as education, finance, medicine, politics, warfare, trial courts, and climate change. But it's more than just encouraging readers to confess their ignorance--Cohen proposes that we have much to gain by embracing uncertainty. Three little words can in fact liberate and empower, and increase the possibilities for true communication. So much becomes possible when we honor doubt
