Overview

WHY I NEVER LIE AND NINETEEN OTHER MOSTLY TRUE STORIES is a collection of medium length pieces that, taken together, offer some explanation of how the author got to be who he is. There’s the story about his reaction to the resignation of Spiro Agnew and subsequent encounter with some shady characters during a research trip back in the ‘70’s that taught him the pitfalls of fabricating for the sake of self-aggrandizement; the one about his battle with a family of raccoons that ultimately led to a bloody inter-species alliance; the saga of how his high school girl friend’s father concocted a brilliant, untraceable scheme to have him rubbed out; and the cautionary tale of Albirdio the African Gray and how lies of omission, no matter how justifiable, can be just as destructive as the regular kind. All twenty stories rely almost entirely on the never-ending torrent of little ironies that rain down upon us every day. As its name implies, WHY I NEVER LIE is a book of short stories to be held lightly.
