Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

A woman suffering from a complex brain disorder that causes her to lie compulsively takes readers inside her mind to explore the complexities of a constantly restless and deceived consciousness. Reprint.


Review:

"Because this is her third memoir, Slater may have had no choice but to enter a metaphorical realm; there may have been no facts left to tell. Nonetheless, readers will be grateful to her for pushing the boundaries of creative nonfiction. Yes, she is sometimes unlikable...but her intelligence and sincerity shine from every page."

Emily Jenkins, Mirabella, June/July 2000

Review:

"LYING is either a postmodern tour de force of literary chicanery or one of the most honest, self-revealing memoirs ever penned. Either way, this book is a gratifying read: profound, engaging, and, ultimately, as intelligent as it is clever."

Cathryn Alpert, San Francisco Chronicle, 08/30/2000

Book Description: Penguin Books, United States, 2001. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 193 x 127 mm. Brand New Book. In this powerful and provocative new memoir, award-winning author Lauren Slater forces readers to redraw the boundary between what we know as fact and what we believe through the creation of our own personal fictions. Mixing memoir with mendacity, Slater examines memories of her youth, when after being diagnosed with a strange illness she developed seizures and neurological disturbances-and the compulsion to lie. Openly questioning the reliability of memoir itself, Slater presents the mesmerizing story of a young woman who discovers not only what plagues her but also what cures her-the birth of her sensuality, her creativity as an artist, and storytelling as an act of healing.
