THE TRUTH ABOUT ME: STORIES is the fiction debut of extraordinary stories by New York writer Louise Marburg, in which shortcomings, secrets, and inventions turn notions of love and self upside down. No matter what their station in life, the characters in these wry and moving stories face moments in which the shock of being and becoming comes from within.
“Delivered in strong, clean, biting prose, each story feels so uncannily right that the tonal hypnosis starts at once…Each enters us like an elegy and bulletin; dissonant, strangely consoling. The Truth About Me brings a welcome new talent to light.”
—Joan Frank, The San Francisco Chronicle
