Arcana Hosts A Book Signing With Linda Rosenkrantz
July 5, 2015 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
On Sunday, July 5th from 4:00pm – 6:00pm, please join Arcana: Books on the Arts as they host an afternoon meet and greet with author Linda Rosenkrantz in celebration of her innovative and now-classic Summer read: TALK.
Talk is a hilariously irreverent and racy testament to dialogue – the gossip, questioning, analysis, arguments and revelations that make up our closest friendships. Set in the summer of 1965, Emily, Vincent, and Marsha are at the beach. The trio are ambitious, artistic, hovering around thirty, and deeply and mercilessly invested in analyzing themselves along with everyone around them. They discuss sex, shrinks, psychedelics, sculpture, and S&M in an ongoing narrative where anything goes, and no topic is off limits. These conversations were tape-recorded by Linda Rosenkrantz and transformed into a novel whose form and content put it well ahead of its time. Controversial upon its first publication in 1968, Talk remains fresh, lascivious, and laugh-out-loud funny nearly fifty years later.
Linda Rosenkrantz is the author of several books including Telegram!: Modern History as Told Through More than 400 Witty, Poignant, and Revealing Telegrams, her memoir, My Life as a List: 207 Things About My (Bronx) Childhood, and the co-author with Christopher Finch of Gone Hollywood: The Movie Colony in the Golden Age. She resides in Los Angeles and is a founder of the popular baby-naming site Nameberry.com.
