All Men Are LiarsPaperback - 2012
In this gorgeously wrought and imagined novel, an investigative journalist interviews those who knew - or though they knew - Alejandro Bevilacqua, a brilliant South American writer and author of the masterpiece "In Praise of Lying." Through the diverse voices of those close to Bevilacqua and their divergent portraits of the man at the centre of this literary examination of truth, the reader holds the power of final judgment. In "All Men Are Liars," Alberto Manguel pays homage to literature's revolving inventions, in which our own ideas of the world and the people around us are given agency and projected onto these virtuoso pages.
