Description

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.show more

Review quote

'[Boyle] is unashamedly an entertainer, peerless in his ability to swing between high and low culture' Time Out 'No American novelist can touch him ... the novel flies along on the power of Boyle's propulsive and exquisitely perceptive prose' Entertainment Weekly 'Talk Talk opens at full throttle and never slackens ... a rage so intense that it overtakes reason runs through the book like a superhighway' San Francisco Chronicle '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 Timesshow more
