NINE LIES by Randy Russell
The truth held in lies… and lies vs. “the truth.” Sexuality vs. fantasy. The cult of alcoholism. The nature of crime. The myth of gainful employment. Art vs. nostalgia. Love vs. obsession.
Told from a variety of perspectives and settings, on the surface, Nine Lies is an unassuming collection of entertaining tales, whimsical yarns, and embarrassing confessions. It is also an intricately constructed story cycle comprised of ten interconnected narratives that relentlessly circle back on each other in order to further depth and understanding—and to reveal the secret meaning behind it all.
