About this product
- DescriptionEffie Gillis is a history professor teaching at a major university. She is also a survivor - of a troubled childhood, two failed marriages and numerous relationships which, for the most part, ended badly. Now, out of her past, arrives a man who is familiar and yet mysterious; mature, wise, and full of youthful energy. His presence is a reassurance, but he also carries with him an aura that is menacing. Slowly she becomes dependent on a relationship that's rich in truth and promise - but doomed by the lie that gave it life. Drawing on both mir and major characters from his two previous vels, The Long Stretch and The Bishop's Man, Why Men Lie is a story of longing, love and loss in middle age.
