This final volume from the great novelist and critic "is essential reading for all admirers of Malcolm Bradbury and, for those who don't know his work, an invaluable sampler of his worldly-wise humor and satirical wit."  —Independent
When Sir Malcolm Bradbury died in 2000, he left behind a lifetime's work: published and unpublished; fiction and nonfiction; short stories and novels; completed work and work in progress. Given shape and coherence by his son, Dominic, that work has now become Liar's Landscape—a book about books, about writing and writers, and, of course, about being Malcolm Bradbury. Taking the reader from unfinished novels to unsent letters, and from prose to plays, it is eloquent evidence of Bradbury's versatility, wit, and passion for the written word.

From the Back Cover:

'An engaging collection, lovingly put together' Blake Morrison, " Guardian"

When Sir Malcolm Bradbury died in 2000, he left behind a lifetime's work; some of it published and some of it not; fiction and non-fiction; short stories and novels; completed work, work in progress, work barely begun; plans, sketches, notes, titles. Given shape and coherence by his son, Dominic, that work has now become "Liar's Landscape," a book about books, about writing and writers, about being a writer and, of course, about being Malcolm Bradbury.

'This book is a reminder of Malcolm Bradbury's mainfold talents, and of his scope. The TV writer, memoirist, playwright, journalist and wit left plenty for his fans to enjoy' "Daily Telegraph"
