The Liar


Show Synopsis

Stephen Fry's breathtakingly outrageous debut novel, by turns eccentric, shocking, brilliantly comic and achingly romantic. Adrian Healey is magnificently unprepared for the long littleness of life; unprepared too for the afternoon in Salzburg when he will witness the savage murder of a Hungarian violinist; unprepared to learn about the Mendax device; unprepared for more murders and wholly unprepared for the truth.

Great fun

This book is a real kick, and full of surprises. Very British, with (purportedly) inside looks at what we would call private schools and Cambridge, which the author attended. One note: it has some crude language and some homosexual characters, so if you don't like that sort of thing, stay away.
