Stop! Thief! He’s Got Her Life!

Talk Talk by T. C. Boyle

Reviewed by Yvonne Zipp
Christian Science Monitor

"If you are one of the 26.5 million veterans whose personal information was on that stolen laptop, stop reading right now. And under no circumstances should you buy Talk Talk, the latest novel by T.C. Boyle. The rest of us, though, will certainly enjoy the PEN-Faulkner Award-winner's satirically clever take on that most modern of crimes, identity theft. (Although be warned: Side effects include a creeping feeling of paranoia and an overwhelming urge to purchase a shredder.)" Read the entire Christian Science Monitor review.
