Is everybody mendacity, or simply telling their very own subjective model of the reality? because the literary research unfolds and a refrain of Bevilacqua’s friends piece jointly the fractured truth of his lifestyles, thirty years after his loss of life, purely the reader holds the ability of ultimate judgment.

In All males Are Liars, Alberto Manguel can pay homage to literature’s innovations and explores no matter if we will be able to ever really understand an individual, and the query of the way, by means of whom, and for what, we ourselves should be remembered.
