Short Synopsis
Through stories that are at once empathetic and unexpected, these women and girls defiantly push the boundaries between selfishness and self-possession. With a fresh voice and bold honesty, Back Talk examines how narrowly our culture allows women to express their desires.

Full Synopsis
In "Floor Plans," a woman at the end of her marriage tests her power when she inadvertently befriends the neighbor trying to buy her apartment. In "Appetite," a sixteen-year old grieving her mother’s death experiences first love and questions how much more heartbreak she and her family can endure. In "Dinosaurs," a recent widower and a young babysitter help each other navigate how much they have to give—and how much they can take—from the people around them.

Through stories that are at once empathetic and unexpected, these women and girls defiantly push the boundaries between selfishness and self-possession. With a fresh voice and bold honesty, Back Talk examines how narrowly our culture allows women to express their desires.

"A girl copes with the loss of her mother. A woman grapples with her upcoming divorce. These are two of the stories of love and loss that Reba Buhr's strong narration ramps up in this female-centric collection." ---AudioFile

"From humble to fierce, manipulative to submissive, Buhr personifies Lazarin's vast cast with detailed attention and admirable control." ---Library Journal Audio Review
