Miranda Doyle’s grippingly unreliable memoir is unlike most. Each chapter begins with a lie told to or by the author. In this way she constructs a story about her family, a troubled Edinburgh childhood and in particular her charismatic and elusive father. It’s a book about love, marriage and kinship ties. But it’s also an examination of the stories we tell ourselves – and others – to survive from the white lie to the sin of omission and the shameless whopper. She tries to tell the truth to Peggy Hughes.
