Man Talking can be read for free and in its entirety at It has received nearly three thousand hits since being posted in April 2008.

Talking Man can be purchased exclusively from Small Anchor Press, a New York based independent press specializing in limited editions of finely crafted, handmade books. A first edition, published in September 2008, has nearly sold out, and a second edition is planned.

Talking will be released in early 2009.
