Are there any articles or books that talk about how IQ disparities between individuals affects communication?

I seem to recall reading somewhere that meaningful conversation is difficult if two individuals are more than such and such IQ points apart. Does anyone know of any articles or books that discuss this phenomenon?
An aside: I realize IQ is a pretty arbitrary measure of one kind of intelligence, and I am not asking about the validity of using IQ to predict anything. However, if there is a publication/study like the one I describe above, I think it would have interesting implications for other types of intelligence that are not as easily measured (emotional, physical, musical, etc.).
