  • What buyers say about The Liar's Dictionary: A Novel


    If ever a songbird was designed to glare, Dr. Rochfort-Smith's specimen was that bird, or it tasted of soap used by a dictator, Williams has a knack for conjuring up charmingly unexpected turns of phrase.


    The characters are flat, full and written in big flourishes like a signature that takes up all of the line for no reason because you can't make it out.


    It requires research, that asks for definitions of every word, and perhaps sheds some light on why Winceworth included these fake words in the first place.


    All language is deemed reliable and true until it is not, until it is subtly changed beyond recognition with some words falling into arcane or archaic obscurity, and others dwindle away like piled letters which signify nothing except a once-upon-a-time, fake, mountweazeled.


    I found myself laughing out loud and I would like to write down some of the wonderful words I found in it.
