Selected for Richard & Judy's Summer Read, Maile Meloy's brilliant novel, Liars and Saints, was acclaimed by readers and reviewers alike. In deceptively straightforward writing, Meloy depicted the story of the Santerre family with remarkable insight and perception, creating 'an emotional resonance that lasts long after the last page' (Daily Mail).



This same talent is again on display in these dazzling stories. Whether Meloy is describing a soldier's kiss in wartime London, a best friend's funeral or a young girl's determination to hang on to her virginity, the result is startling, fresh and unforgettable.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Meloy writes in a compelling style. She plucks run of the mill lives out of the ether and weaves them into an interesting yarn. * Dover Express/Folkestone Herald *
Beautifully written * Harper's Bazaar *
A sparkling debut collection of tight, watchful stories... by the end the power of storytelling has made itself felt * New York Times *
In every story she creates a complex portrait of such disparate lives that by the end of the book I feel like I've seen the world. Half in Love is a vibrant, gorgeous collection * Ann Patchett *
Absolutely compulsive * The Daily Telegraph on LIARS AND SAINTS *
A natural, who consistently widens and extend the short story form to meet the demands of her uncommon intelligence and wit and sympathy * Richard Ford *
Wistful tales of love lost and found * Mail on Sunday *
Meloy writes elegantly and precisely, never wasting a word... a terrific read * Time Out on LIARS AND SAINTS *
