9780062065094: The Book of Lies (P.S.)

On the English Channel island of Guernsey, a teenage girl's Mean Girls-like experience pushes her to murder her best friend in a scandal, she will discover, that mirrors her uncle's previously unknown story from the days of the island's Nazi occupation during WWII. Told through the voices of fifteen-year-old Cat Rozier and her long-dead Uncle Charlie--known to Cat only by the audio recordings he left behind--The Book of Lies lucidly illuminates the interior lives of a scorned modern girl with attitude and a defiant, faded man. With echoes of Nicole Krauss's The History of Love and Jennifer McMahon's Promise Not to Tell, Mary Horlock's stunning debut novel is an unforgettable exploration of aspiration, anguish, and rebellion.

Review:

"[An] assured debut. . . . Horlock has created an authentic voice and not only illuminated the history of a small island but also thrown light on the subjectivity of history, truth and memory."--The Independent

"Moving, engaging and complex . . . Horlock's authorial debut is impressive."--the Scotsman

"The joy of this ingenious debut is that, somehow, it manages to link twin stories convincingly to create an impressive fable about the relativity of truth and the deceits that make living on a small island possible. Highly recommended."--Financial Times
