Editorial Reviews

"The Liar is hilarious -- page after page of the most outrageous and often filthy jokes, delicious conceits, instant, brilliant ripostes that would only occur to ordinary mortals after days of teeth-grinding lunacy."
Literary Review

"Brilliantly entertaining and consistently outrageous."
