The Secret Talker
Communication. Should we remain silent, or should we speak out? In her novel titled, The Secret Talker, Geling Yan explores the choices we have in communication. Chinese-born protagonist Hongmei and her American husband, Glen, live in California, and their relationship has become disjointed, falling to the level of leaving Post-It notes for each other instead of talking directly. After Hongmei receives an email from an unknown sender, she chooses to reply. The consequences of the reply provide much of the tension throughout this finely written novel. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase The Secret Talker from amazon.com.
