A reading and interview with author J.C. Weil author of Eavesdropping: A Little Novel. A funny, thoughtful, slightly maddening story about what happens when a woman becomes selectively mute. "Eavesdropping is an unflinchingly courageous following of the dynamics of a woman's seemingly deliberate dysfunction... intriguing anaylysis develops as the reader 'eavesdrops' on the questions, the search for answers, and the reasoning presented from the differing perspectives of Dezzy and Harry... One can compare this book of interior monologues... to The Yellow Wallpaper, a classic, by Charlotte Perkins." --Mary Rudge, Poet and editor, The Human Face of Love ABOUT THE AUTHOR
