I've always had a thing for non-fiction novels and especially those that deal with addiction and real life situations. Which is why I was drawn to Liar. Liar is a book about addiction, romance, friendship, relapse, and declining mental and physical health. It's a fragmented story told in the second person point-of-view. While second person POV is a really risky storytelling device -- Roberge pulls it off with ease. He is putting us, the readers, in his shoes and it allows his journey to become our journey.
Roberge is candid, funny, and hopelessly honest. Roberge's story is as unique as his writing. While this isn't my favorite memoir it certainly made me want to read more of his work.
