Description
Michael and Sarah's marriage is already in trouble. But the revelation that Michael has a daughter he's never mentioned--and only just met--pushes their relationship to the breaking point. His secrecy about the past, his compulsion to visit his ex-lover, and the sudden presence of his beautiful, grown daughter in their lives drives Sarah to search for the truth--a search that takes her from Washington, D.C., to Latin America. Chatter is a snapshot of a marriage taken against the landscape of our frenetic culture, where invasive news reports, overheard conversations, and screaming headlines punctuate our days. Its dead-on dialogue captures the collapse of communication and the tension created when discussions go unfinished and questions go unanswered. Balancing humor and terror, Ireland brilliantly depicts the elusiveness of security--globally and in our own homes--and the longing to find that safe place in a loved one's arms.
