Talk to Her is McKenna's second collection (the first was 1999's Book of Changes) of favorite interviews culled from her files, and the book reveals her highly intimate technique as an interviewer. That she manages to get such candor out of her subjects is remarkable. The stunning list of interview subjects includes: Filmmaker Robert Altman; Jackie Onassis's cousin Edie Beale; punk rocker and poet Exene Cervenka; the musician Elvis Costello; surf guitar legend Dick Dale; the postmodern critic Jacques Derrida; John (Johnny Rotten) Lydon; cartoon journalist Joe Sacco; and many more, plus an interview with Orson Welles's assistant about the great one's last days. Talk to Her also includes portraits of each interview subject by some of the best cartoonists in the world, including Daniel Clowes, Charles Burns, Phoebe Gloeckner, Jason T. Miles, Tony Millionaire, Jeff Wong and others.

"If there's any doubt that McKenna is one of the most gifted journalists in America, this moving collection of interviews should put that doubt to rest." – Joe Frank

"Kristine has a rare talent for catching her subjects being themselves and saying things they care about." – Beck

"McKenna expertly draws out so much wisdom and character, you'll never miss not knowing what they're wearing." – Jane
