Synopsis: The Talking Room reflects an apocalyptic vision of the late 20th century, seen through the eyes of a pregnant 13 year old who may or may not be a test tube baby. The Lesbian relationship between the mother J-wild, lost, beautiful-and competent Aunt V, a business woman, reveals itself to the reader as "the talking room" becomes the sounding board for endless fights, endless reconciliations. V's desperate search for the beloved J through the nights of waterfront bars is lightened by wildly comic excursions reminiscent of our great American humorists. With wit, poetic clarity and compassion, Marianne Hauser explores the paradoxes of our age-need for love yet flight from love, search for self yet self-destruction- a dilemma sared alike by today's heterosexual and homosexual world. The author's multifaceted view defies dogma or simplification as her characters draw us into their turbulent and deeply human drama.

Review: "...the most insanely perfect novel I have experienced in...20 years. Vladimir Nabokov, roll over." -- Steve Katz

"...weaves the strange,...unknown,...unfamiliar,...perverse, into a fabric of human fallibilities that draws drama and farce close to us." -- Anais Nin
