Synopsis: Grief, Love and What Endures
"A wise, lyrical and deeply moving auscultation of a mourning heart and its possibilities for solace."
—Publishers Weekly

In Speak to Me, acclaimed novelist Marcie Hershman asks what endures after the death of a loved one. Drawing on her brother's newly discovered Jewish faith during his long illness, as well as childhood memories and the sound of his voice, she offers a heartbreaking meditation on grief and remembrance.

"This book, like a friend, comes to enlighten and console its every reader."
—James Carroll, author of Constantine's Sword

"Hershman feels her way through individual and family memory, philosophy, history, religion, and psychology into realms I haven't been to before, and leaves a loving record of their lives so potent that she made me grieve for people I've never met."
—Rosellen Brown, author of Half a Heart

"A passionate meditation on the sound of others' voices. . . . If the book weren't so beautifully written, it would be almost too painful to read."
—Amanda Heller, The Boston Globe

"It struggles with silence but it exhales lifeaffirming sound."
—Cynthia Dettelbach, Cleveland Jewish News

From the Inside Flap: *He was gone. The earth fell over him then; air spilled without him. The voice I'd heard soon after forming my first words, the voice I'd leaned against, the voice I meant I wanted when calling out loud for my brother, did not stir.* Original and deeply powerful, *Speak to Me* is, at its heart, the story of a close sibling relationship, told by a sister after her brother's death. Missing the sound of Rob's voice, Marcie Hershman speaks out of the silence to examine the ways she listens for him still. She recalls the past--youthful rivalries, a family's love, the illness he moved through. She visits again his last months of life--the home in California he shared with his partner, and the wonder she felt at how he called out to God with a fullness of faith. At the last, she recounts the present, enriched by mysteries of connection beyond explanation.

*Speak to Me* asks what endures from a relationship. It considers how grief silences us and how cherished voices return, transformed, after a loved one dies. Do we hear in our dreams? What does it mean to reclaim a dear voice on tape? *Speak to Me* explores the bond of voice that connects us, not only in life but beyond death. It is a voice for anyone who wants to hear anew the voice of someone they love.

"Original and deeply powerful, Speak to Me is, at its heart, the story of a close sibling relationship, told by a sister after her brother's death. "Robert and I were close because we shared certain sensibilities. We loved those of our own gender. We loved learning. We gave ourselves up to the worded silences, in study, in prayer." "Missing the sound of Rob's voice, Marcie Hershman speaks out of the silence to examine the ways she listens for him still. She recalls the past - youthful rivalries, a family's love, the illness he moved through. She visits again his last months of life - the home in California he shared with his partner, and the wonder she felt at how he called out to God with a fullness of faith.
