Fiction. A boy finds an artist's manifesto on the floor, a gay man reflects on his regrets, a woman suddenly sees a man's face through her car window. Subtly referencing some of the great iconoclasts of literature and philosophy (Kafka, Wilde, Nietzsche), the vignettes in THE BIG LIE unveil a defiant sense of contemporary artistic possibility, rising at times into a full-scale attack on American style consumerism, unmediated authorship, and the bloated privileges of literary genius. Quick shifts between styles, personas, and subject matter keep the reader critical and wary.
