New York Times: What to do this weekend?

Date: Sep 3 2015

If, like me, you’re feeling a bit bereft to find yourself at the last installment of Elena Ferrante’s Neopolitan Novels (“The Story of the Lost Child” is out this week), pick up Linda Rosenkrantz’s recently reissued novel “Talk,” which takes up a friendship of a different kind. It’s a novel told in dialogue lifted from life — Rosenkrantz recorded her conversations with two friends while on holiday in the summer of 1965 — and it makes for refreshingly tart summer reading.
