Good Talk: A Memoir in Conversations

21,000+ Reviews has the highest-rated customer service of any bookstore in the world


NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW, TIME, BUZZFEED, ESQUIRE, LIBRARY JOURNAL AND KIRKUS REVIEWS LONGLISTED FOR THE PEN/OPEN BOOK AWARD ‘Hilarious and heart-rending’ Celeste Ng ‘Heartbreaking, but also infused with levity and humour. What stands out most is the fierce compassion with which she parses the complexities of family and love’ Time How brown is too brown? Can Indians be racist? What does real love between really different people look like?

Like many six-year-olds, Mira Jacob’s half-Jewish, half-Indian son, Z, has questions about everything – and as tensions from the 2016 election spread from the media into his own family, they become much, much more complicated. Trying to answer him honestly, Mira has to think back to where she’s gotten her own answers.

Written with humor and vulnerability, this deeply relatable graphic memoir is a love letter to the art of conversation – and to the hope that hovers in our most difficult questions.

‘Helps us think with grace and disarming wit … Reading these searching, often hilarious tête-à-têtes is as effortless as eavesdropping on a crosstown bus … Magic’ New York Times Book Review

‘Vibrant, inventive and vulnerable … Good Talk attempts to answer, with humour and heart, some of the most difficult questions of all’ Bustle

‘Moving and very funny’ Esquire
