Although they hated each other at first sight, Ruth and Ann become friends who share their lives, and now must share death. Elizabeth Berg presents a story that strips away some of the mystery of feminine interaction, while maintaining a sense of realness that listeners will surely appreciate. This is due, in part, to Beth Fowler's superb narration. Almost confessional in nature, her delivery is at once thoughtful and humorous, weaving in and out of the text's complex emotions. While TALK BEFORE SLEEP may not give definitive insight to the depths of friendship between two women, it is certainly a tender and credible story, smartly illuminated by Fowler's performance.
