Your life should express what you truly believe.

Terpin Taft is happy to tell people what they want to hear, even if it means stretching the truth a bit. Until the day he meets a stranger on a train and tells the man a consoling lie. The results are so disastrous that Terpin resolves never again to speak or act except by the truth in his heart. But this, too, has disastrous -- if sometimes comical -- results.

Elegantly written, terpin is a modern fable that emphasizes the importance of being true to one’s own values -- no matter what.

About the Author:

Born in Littleton, New Hampshire, Tor Seidler grew up in Vermont and later, Seattle, Washington, in both of which places his parents were involved in the theater.
