Publisher's Summary

One of Tobias Wolff's classic tales, The Liar is the story of a deceitful teenage boy and his religious, resolute mother.

James is a liar. He enjoys inventing fantastic stories about his family, particularly his mother. Margaret is orderly, stubborn, and judgmental - a woman who throws rocks at hungry bears and never misses four o'clock Mass. She loves her children but has always struggled with James. Like his deceased father, he's fascinated by the darker aspects of life - car crashes, illness, and crime. Dr. Murphy, the family physician who dabbles in psychiatry, believes that James' lying is harmless. His mother, however, thinks otherwise.

Written with candor and humor, The Liar is a meditation on one of the most pervasive characteristics of human nature.
