Speak to Me
The spiky wit of DEPT. OF SPECULATION and the ache and romance of BRIEF ENCOUNTER collide brilliantly in SPEAK TO ME: the story of a woman who feels she is losing her husband to his mobile phone - and that she might be falling out of love with modern life.
I shall explain about our marriage. We have a modern version of a long-distance relationship. We share a house, but live in different historical eras...
What happens in a relationship when your partner only has eyes for their new phone?
What happens when you lose a treasured possession - a hoard of love letters documenting a relationship that never really ended - and this loss becomes an obsession?
Speak to Me is the story of a woman's quest, in a world ruled by screens and devices, for a conversation that will unlock who she once was, and what she really wants now. Keenly observed, tender and sharply funny, this is a book about all the ways we say, and don't say, the things in our hearts.
