The Invention of Lying
THE INVENTION OF LYING takes place in an alternate reality in which lying - even the concept of a lie - does not exist. Everyone speaks the truth and nothing but the truth with no thought of the consequences. But when a down-on-his-luck loser named Mark suddenly develops the ability to lie, he finds that dishonesty has its rewards. But lies have a way of spreading, and Mark begins to realize that things are getting a little out of control when some of his tallest tales are being taken as, well, gospel.
