"TELL ME IF YOU'RE LYING covers a wide selection of great subjects: sex, drugs, rebellion, youthful misadventures, not-so-youthful misadventures, family, death, cars, aliens, Madonna, the early career of Adrian Grenier. Sarah Sweeney has some kind of range; her writing can be hysterically funny one line and heartbreaking the next. This is a strikingly smart, self-aware, and empathetic book about a lot of things, but mostly love: for the people and places and decisions that make us who we are. Essays, memoir, whatever you want to call it, it's a hell of a good read." --Justin St.Germain, author of Son of a Gun
From the Back Cover
Funny, exuberant, and often heartbreaking, TELL ME IF YOU'RE LYING examines the lies we're told as children and the downright unbelievable--but true--stories that comprise Sweeney's colorful coming of age.
