In Talk to Me she applies her rare talent to the language of political power in America.Believing that character and language are inextricably bound, Smith sets out to discern the essence of America by listening to its people and trying to capture its politics.

To that end she travels to some of Americas most conspicuous places, like the presidential conventions of 1996, and some of its darkest corners, like a womens prison in Maryland. And along the way she interviews everyone from janitors to murderers to Bill Clinton himself.

Memoir, social commentary, meditation on language, this book is as vastly ambitious as it is compellingly unique.
