Review

The drama of important events can catch any eye; but the drama of the
everyday—those tiny revealing moments wherein a glance, a turn of the
head, a tremor of the hand can convey drama of a high order—is visible
only to those who are able to interpret these delicate signs. This
collection is a potpourri of such moments: flashes that reveal a
character, even a life, in a single moment of illumination. Speak pays
readers the delicate compliment of assuming that they will “find their
own way,” combining their insights with hers to read the story between
the lines.
