The Liar

The Liar

Author: Stephen Fry
$24.95 (AUD)  inc GST
Available Stock: 0

Stephen Fry's breathtakingly outrageous debut novel, by turns eccentric, shocking, brilliantly comic and achingly romantic. Adrian Healey is magnificently unprepared for the long littleness of life; unprepared too for the afternoon in Salzburg when he will witness the savage murder of a Hungarian violinist; unprepared to learn about the Mendax device; unprepared for more murders and wholly unprepared for the truth.


'A quite brilliant first novel.' - Sunday Times '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.' - Daily Mail
