Talk to me : listening between the lines by Anna Deavere Smith( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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."--Jacket

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contains two plays by Anna Deavere Smith that explore the American experience from various points of view.

Arcing from Clinton and Monical Lewinsky to Jefferson and Sally Hemings and alive with the voices of such real-life figures as Ed Bradley, George Stephanopoulos, Anita Hill, and Abraham Lincoln, the result is an examination of the intersection of public power and private life. In Piano, Smith casts her gaze back a century to 1898 as she follows the tangled lines of race, sex, and exploitation in a prosperous Cuban household on the eve of the Spanish-American War
