Description of this Book

There's more than one to way to take a life in this masterful thriller from one of the greatest voices in American contemporary fiction Dana sits in a courtroom with her legs shackled as a long list of charges is read out, many of them dangerous. But the panic that grips her is not because she has been caught. She knows there has been a terrible mistake - she didn't commit any of these crimes. As Dana and her lover Bridger set out to clear her name and find the person who is living a blameless life of criminal excess at her expense, they begin to test the life they have built together to its limits.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review A complete triumph ... An energetic combination of detective story and road trip * Daily Telegraph * Darkly humorous depictions of how any person can be victimised by identity thieves * Sunday Times * [Boyle] is unashamedly an entertainer, peerless in his ability to swing between high and low culture * Time Out * Talk Talk stands out as nothing short of an uncomfortable masterpiece - as simultaneously overwhelming, treacherous, beautiful and boiling over with hellacious revelation as its ultimate subject: life in twentieth-century America * Los Angeles Times * Talk Talk opens at full throttle and never slackens ... A rage so intense that it overtakes reasons runs through the book like a superhighway * San Francisco Chronicle * No American novelist can touch him ... the novel flies along on the power of Boyle's propulsive and exquisitely perceptive prose * Entertainment Weekly * Wonderful ... a truly wild read * Daily Express *
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 3 stars (out of 5)
