Talk, Talk by T.C. Boyle

I’ve been reading T.C. Boyle since I discovered The Road to Wellness which was published in 1993, and never laughed so hard in my life.  Boyle is one of those authors, that when I see his books on the remainder table, I cringe.  I love him that much.

This book isn’t funny one bit but the theme is one we can all relate to and often fear.  What would you do if you were a bit distracted one morning and ran a stop sign only to be stopped by the police?  Although Dana Halter is a bit irritated by her carelessness, she’s shocked when a quick search by the officer turns up multiple outstanding felony charges and she’s thrown into the criminal justice system.

Seems her identity has been stolen and since the police refuse to take her problem seriously, she and her boyfriend decide to hunt down the criminals themselves.

Oh, and to add a bit of additional color to the book, I forgot to mention that Dana is deaf.  This is a great book so I give it an A.
