Friendships are built on chatter, on gossip, on revelations − on talk. Over the course of the summer of 1965, Linda Rosenkrantz taped conversations between three artsy friends on the cusp of 30 (two straight women, one gay man) vacationing at the beach:  Emily, an actor; Vince, a painter; and Marsha, a writer. The result was ‘Talk’, a novel in dialogue. The friends are ambitious, conflicted, jealous, petty, loving, funny, and sex and shrink obsessed and there’s nothing they won’t discuss. Topics covered include LSD, fathers, exes, lovers, abortions, S&M, and of course, each other. 

'Talk' was ahead of its time in recognizing the fascination and significance of nonfamily ties in contemporary life. It may be almost fifty years since Emily, Vince, and Marsha spent the season in East Hampton, but they wouldn’t be out of place on the set of 'Girls' now!
