Talk Talk by T. C. Boyle
Talk Talk

cybonan, November 17, 2006

Boyle's typical crazy ride takes us on a chase across country and leads to revelations about the inner thoughts of a modern criminal and of the silent but booming world of a deaf person. He reveals hidden layers in the history of linguistics and illustrates how we communicate on many different levels. In this vivid story you subconsciously become aware of the faults of an utterly compassionate character and begin to sympathize, ever so slightly, with the deplorable crook. Talk talk is a fun ride!

Water Music: A Novel by T. C. Boyle
Water Music: A Novel

cybonan, November 14, 2006

The story is far-out, to a level only T.C Boyle can reach. The setting is rich with detail and the characters are both deplorable and far my favorite book from one of the best authors of our time.
