Talk Talk

T. Coraghessan Boyle — better known as T.C. — is back with his 11th novel, Talk Talk, an identity-theft thriller that traces the framing of Dana Halter, a deaf woman who is in danger of disappearing into the criminal-justice system. Her heroic boyfriend, Bridges, is ready to risk it all for Dana’s love, and the two set out on a road trip across the country to clear her name. Sounds simple enough, but Boyle, an Iowa Writer’s Workshop grad and the winner of a PEN/Faulkner and a slew of other awards, writes like a true Mark Twain disciple, working the balance of humor and the ruthless nature of human society with his deftly layered language. He’ll read in the Boston Public Library’s Abbey Room, Copley Square, Boston | July 11 @ 6 pm | free | 617.859.2212. Click here for Peter Keough's Phoenix review of Talk Talk.

Boyle's Wiki

The New York Times reviews Boyle's other books, and Ms. Kakutani hates on Talk Talk: "In any case, it's a sorry and pallid conclusion to what might have been one of this gifted writer's more winning novels."
