Description
When a speech therapist who loves words and real estate decides to stop talking, her world is neither quiet nor less complicated. Love, friendship, psychology, and imagination work as a team in Eavesdropping. This quirky, fast-paced book raises eyebrows and questions, making it an excellent book club selection It prompts readers to ask themselves how they define crazy and not settle for an easy answer. Consider Desirée Bindel, a woman so moral she will risk immorality in her search for moral clarity. Her journey challenges her boyfriend and the reader to ponder the essence of companionship and self-sacrifice, as well as the meaning of integrity and how to live by it. Part mystery, part treasure hunt, Eavesdropping takes place close to home. People, words, the streets where you live–the novel invites you to see them through Dezzy’s eyes--and Harry’s. Answers depend in part upon conversation, but Dezzy isn't talking, and Harry wonders if one of them is crazy. Mum is definitely not the word.
About the author
J. C. Weil is a novelist and actor, poet and ghostwriter, author of children's books and short stories, plays and greeting cards. The word in all its forms is for Weil a lifelong and quasi pathological fascination. All the arts reside in the same mansion, a favorite destination for this author, whose name is not in the phone book. Life is sometimes as perplexing as Alice in Wonderland without the fun, and as magnificent as the imagination and spirit can make it. Not easy, but worth the effort. And that's why Weil writes.
