'Clever, witty and entertaining; and very timely in a society increasingly accustomed to living in a blizzard of lies' --The Times
'All Men Are Liars is a remarkable novel richly textured, ingeniously constructed and deeply unsettling' --The Spectator
'[Manguel s fiction] works from the human core outwards, and is in fact elaborately though unpretentiously constructed.' 'If Paul Auster wore a friendly beard and had more of a Latin temperament, he might produce something like this richly hued, melancholy and funny puzzle of a novel.' --The Guardian
