But whether the witnesses are lying or telling the truth, their accounts will change all that comes after.
This is a story of sacrifice and betrayal, oppression and resistance, and the courage it takes to make both war and peace. THE LIARS' GOSPEL powerfully reimagines a tale we think we already know and invites us to see it in an entirely new light.« less
