Description of the Book Cover
The book cover of Terry Galloway's "Mean Little deaf Queer,"
is an picture of Terry at five years old, wearing an oversized
cowboy hat, overalls, a red flannel shirt, dusty leather cowboy
books and holding a pint-sized guitar. She is standing amid a
typical West Texas landscape -- the backyard of her grandparents'
oil company-owned home, treeless, grassless. The land is hard
packed red-clay. Behind her, in the distance, are a cluster of
other modest, white-clapboard company-owned homes.
