Then she lost her illusions… The man who took her from Tennessee to an exclusive Philadelphia suburb left her in crippling debt. He was an adulterer and a liar, and when Shelby tracks down his safe-deposit box, she finds multiple IDs. The man she loved wasn’t just dead. He never really existed. Shelby takes her three-year-old daughter and heads south to seek comfort in her hometown, where she meets someone new: Griff Lott, a successful contractor. But her husband had secrets she has yet to discover. Even in this small town, surrounded by loved ones, danger is closer than she knows—and threatens Griff, as well. And an attempted murder is only the beginning... *Booklist (starred review) From the Trade Paperback edition.

The brilliant and outrageous debut novel from British actor, comedian, author, presenter, journalist and national treasure, Stephen Fry. 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. The Liar is a thrilling, sophisticated and laugh out loud hilarious novel from a brilliantly talented writer.

"Paris, 1643: Dorante is a charming young man newly arrived in the capital, and he has but a single flaw: He cannot tell the truth. In quick succession he meets Cliton, a manservant who cannot tell a lie, and falls in love with Clarice, a charming young woman whom he unfortunately mistakes for her friend Lucrece. What our hero regrettably does not know is that Clarice is secretly engaged to his best friend Alcippe. Nor is he aware that his father is trying to get him married to Clarice, whom he thinks isLucrece, who actually is in love with him. From all these misunderstandings and a series of breathtakingly intricate lies springs one of the Western world's greatest comedies, a sparkling urban romance as fresh as the day Pierre Corneille wrote it, brilliantly adapted for today by All in the Timing's David Ives."--P.[4] of cover.

Excerpt from The Liar: A Comedy in Three Acts Carlo Goldoni was born in Venice on the 25th of February, 1707, in a house at the corner of the Ca' Cent'Anni. For forty years he was doing everything, going everywhere. He was Advocate, Candidate for Holy Orders, Coadjutor of the Criminal Chancellor, Clerk of the Procurator, Consul of the Republic of Genoa at Venice, writer, compiler of almanacks, once nearly a monk - no kind of "adventurer," and always having adventures; and for forty years meeting every kind of person from diplomats and ladies of pleasure to swindlers and poets: utterly young in a quiet old way - old in that he seldom gave way to despair. Not sentimental, not tragic, smiling - always a good little disposition; absentminded, yet living entirely in the present; frank, but neither vain nor proud; full of good qualities, - what we should call a dear little man. No more like the other Venetians of those sceptical times than Voltaire was like the disbelievers of his land - a child like Voltaire, but less roguish; and very fond of the theatre. The reason I do not say he was passionately fond of it is that this is just what he was not. In those days every Italian went to the theatre and went into raptures or furies with what he saw. But every Italian was not passionately fond of the theatre. Only the actors were that, and the theatre of Italy in the eighteenth century was still the theatre of the actors. Unless you know something about the European theatre of the sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries you will not know that the Italian actors practically made it. Some poets and architects lent it a generous hand, dowered it with a superb setting: but the heart, the fire, and the voice of the European theatre from 1550 to 1780 were given to it by the actors. By 1564 they had swept all over Europe, these magicians; and so tremendous was their force, so countless were their numbers, they were able to wander far afield and yet leave at home many thousands of their kind to enchant the princes and the people in Siena and in Rome, in Florence, in Perugia, in Naples, Pisa, and Verona.

Bringing together powerful new tools from set theory and the philosophy of language, this book proposes a solution to one of the few unresolved paradoxes from antiquity, the Paradox of the Liar. Treating truth as a property of propositions, not sentences, the authors model two distinct conceptions of propositions: one based on the standard notion used by Bertrand Russell, among others, and the other based on J.L. Austin's work on truth. Comparing these two accounts, the authors show that while the Russellian conception of the relation between sentences, propositions, and truth is crucially flawed in limiting cases, the Austinian perspective has fruitful applications to the analysis of semantic paradox. In the course of their study of a language admitting circular reference and containing its own truth predicate, Barwise and Etchemendy also develop a wide range of model-theoretic techniques--based on a new set-theoretic tool, Peter Aczel's theory of hypersets--that open up new avenues in logical and formal semantics.

Micah is a liar. That's the one thing she won't lie about. Over the years, she's duped her classmates, her teachers, and even her parents. But when her boyfriend Zach dies under brutal circumstances, Micah sets out to tell the truth. At first the truth comes easily-because it is a lie. Other truths are so unbelievable, so outside the realm of normal, they must be a lie. And the honest truth is buried so deep in Micah's mind even she doesn't know if it's real. The ultimate unreliable narrator takes readers on a thrill ride in this highly acclaimed novel. Prepare to grasp for truth until the very last page. "Readers will get chills . . . [and] be guessing and theorizing long after they've finished this gripping story." -Publishers Weekly, starred review "[Micah's] suspenseful, supernatural tale is engrossing. . . . The chilling story she spins will have readers' hearts racing." -School Library Journal, starred review "An engrossing story of teenage life on the margins." -Kirkus Reviews, starred review
