Talk Talk

T.C. Boyle is one of the most unpredictable writers in business today. His books span a huge range of styles and themes. Some have been instant hits, others languish in obscurity. Even in his less than stellar novels, though, Boyle is always interesting.
Talk Talk follows a deaf woman who's identity has been stolen. It also follows the thief. What unfolds is a compelling look at identity, communication, and our relationships with those around us. Boyle is one of those writers who always has something deeper simmering beneath his plots, but this book doesn't suffer from the heavy-handed pretense so many works striving to be "deep" suffer from.
