Over the past twenty-five years, T.C. Boyle has earned wide acclaim and an enthusiastic following with such adventurous, inimitable novels as "The Tortilla Curtain, Drop City," and "The Road to Wellville." For his riveting eleventh novel, Boyle offers readers the closest thing to a thriller he has ever written, a tightly scripted page turner about the trials of Dana Halter, a thirty-three-year-old deaf woman whose identity has been stolen. Featuring a woman in the lead role (a Boyle first), "Talk Talk" is both a suspenseful chase across America and a moving story about language, love, and identity from one of America's most versatile and entertaining novelists.
