Talk to me : listening between the lines

Smith, Anna Deavere.

New York : Random House, 2000.

p. cm.

"In Talk to Me, Smith looks back at a singular career as a seeker and interpreter of language in America, revealing the methodology behind her extraordinary search for the truth and nuances of verbal communication. For thirty years, the defining thesis of Smith's work has been that how we speak is just as important in communicating truth and identity as what we say. Everything from individual vocal tone to grammar, Smith demonstrates, can be as identifiable and revealing as a fingerprint. Her journey has taken her from the rarefied bastions of academia to riot-torn streets; she has conducted hundreds of interviews with subjects-ranging from women prisoners to presidents of the United States. In 1995, her ongoing investigation led her to Washington, D.C."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
