"Speaking is a novel about work and love, about politics and friendship, about past and time present.
Lily, Pook, Madeline, Beth and Kate have been friends for ten years, throughout the Seventies.
In the days before Christmas, 1980 they face crises revealing the hopes and frustrations of that decade. They look back over their pasts, recalling, sometimes with humour, sometimes with pain, their dreams of the future and the decisions that influenced it."
