Liars in Love

Liars in Love


The stories in Liars in Love are concerned with troubled relations and the elusive nature of truth. Whether it be in the depiction of the complications of divorced families, grown-up daughters, estranged sisters, office friendships or fleeting love affairs, the pieces in this collection showcase Richard Yates's extraordinary gift for observation and his understanding of human frailty.


  • Richard Yates is a writer of commanding gifts: an astonishing skill and robust intelligence. His prose is urbane yet sensitive, with passion and irony held deftly in balance.
