NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * "Unforgettable . . . Truth rings forth clearly from every page. . . . One minute you're laughing, the next you're crying. . . . You'll want to give a copy to every good woman friend you have."-- The Charlotte Observer

What do you say when you know you don't have forever? Ruth has been Ann's closest friend for years--her confidante, her solace, her comic relief, her tutor in life's mysterious ways. So when Ruth becomes ill, Ann is there for her without question. After all, it is Ruth who encouraged Ann to become who she is, Ruth whose rebellious, eccentric spirit provided the perfect counterpoint to Ann's conventional, safe outlook. And so the friends go on as they always have . . . gossiping, consoling, and sharing intimate secrets--but with the knowledge that each shared evening could be their last.

Acclaimed author Elizabeth Berg has created a searing novel about the strength and salvation of women's friendships. Deeply moving and surprisingly funny, Talk Before Sleep is an intimate, uncensored portrait of love and loss, struggle and resilience.

"Tender and irreverent by turns, [ Talk Before Sleep ] offers mature, intelligent and buoyant spirit, like a very good friend."-- Houston Post

"Entertaining, finely crafted . . . Berg tackles serious issues with grace."-- San Francisco Chronicle
