The True Deceiver

Description

The lies we tell ourselves and the lies we tell others – this is the subject of Tove Jansson’s The True Deceiver, her most unnerving and unpredictable novel. Here Jansson takes a darker look at the subjects that are the core of her writing: solitude and community, art and life, love and hate.
