Thursday Giveaway: T.C. Boyle’s Talk Talk

talktalk.jpgThis week, I’m giving away a copy of T.C. Boyle’s Talk Talk, which just came out last month. Of the novel, the Washington Post‘s Ron Charles wrote: “Talk Talk grabs hold of the fragile structures that establish who we are and what we own and shakes them apart. Considering Boyle’s recent subjects — sex research (The Inner Circle), hippies (Drop City), environmental apocalypse (A Friend of the Earth) — it’s remarkable that his most exciting novel yet should focus on the tedium of ruined credit scores and fraudulent drivers’ licenses. But Talk Talk benefits from Boyle’s highbrow/lowbrow style: He knows how to drill down through the surface of everyday life into our core anxieties, and he knows how to write constantly charging, heart-thumping chase scenes.”

As usual, the first reader to email me with a request gets the book. Please use the subject line: “Boyle.” Please include your mailing address. Previous winners excluded.

Update: The winner is Rebecca H. from Bethel, Connecticut.
