The August 29, 2010, edition of the Chicago Sun-Times profiled the University of Illinois Press reissue of What’s That Pig Outdoors? A Memoir of Deafness by Henry Kisor.

“Henry’s Norman Rockwell upbringing (in Evanston, where he still lives most of the year) and ‘mainstream’ achievements make a great case to the contrary. He was a youth swimming champ and summer camp counselor who grew up to become the first deaf student in a century to attend Trinity College in Connecticut. He went on to career success as an award-winning journalist. Since the book’s first printing, he’s added licensed pilot, mystery novelist and grandfather to the list.”
