Boston Globe - July 10, 2011
“In Roland Merullo’s captivating new novel, “The Talk-Funny Girl…’’
all the elements of the plot merge toward the end of the story in a
breathless, stunning climax that feels both surprising and
inevitable, causing us to appreciate all the more what Marjorie has
gone through, and to feel a fresh admiration for her resilience. Her
character, and the way her voice evolves, are the true triumphs of
this book…She dares to set aside her fears, and dream, and it is a
measure of the novel’s success that we cheer for her to achieve that
dream, every step along the way.”
