  • B01MR36L9A

    by Aaron Aaronson
    To be honest, I hate writing these synopsis things and feel I am quite terrible at doing so but I will attempt to provide some sort of hopefully semi-competent description of the nature of the book. It is a very short novel, and technically the word count (38,800) leaves it just shy of what the bare minimum is to be considered a novel, but I do view it as such rather than a morbidly obese novella. The title actually provides a good idea of the nature of the book. It really is summed up somewhat ... more

  • A Good Lie Ain't Easy
