'The morning after the best day of my life - it must have been years, but it felt like a day - I woke up in bed in another country with the wrong woman . . .'

Liam has it all. In front of him glitters an exciting career and a life with the woman he has loved from the moment he saw her. But on a feverish night out he loses his job, his home and his girlfriend. He is lucky to escape with his life.

Trying to leave his shame behind in London, he flees to Argentina to live honestly, and to write the world's longest and truest love letter. But Buenos Aires is the most sensual, most duplicitous city in the world. Surrounded by dubious role models, how will Liam prevent his lies from running away with him?

Romantic, smart and wickedly entertaining, My Biggest Lie is a novel about father figures, second chances and what it means to tell the truth.

Here's what you say about us...

Luke Brown was born and grew up in Lancashire and now lives in London. My Biggest Lie is his first novel.

Captures the sun-soaked sexiness of the city . . . and the hazy drug that is desire better than anything I have read in years . . . witty and tender
Guardian

I loved this book! It is wickedly funny and razor sharp but has a warmth and tenderness that is hard to resist
CATHERINE O'FLYNN, author of What Was Lost

Smart, zingy and extremely funny, this is a real treat
PAUL MURRAY, author of Skippy Dies

A stunning meditation on truth and falsehood in a world in which it becomes ever harder to tell the two apart. Plus it's a real page-turner. Deeply sensual and obscenely funny
GARY SCHTYNGART, author of Absurdistan

It's rare to find writing so lucid and honest at once, and in a book where pages turn themselves. I grabbed this for its mad adventure, but came away with a gift for the heart
DBC PIERRE, author of Vernon God Little

Partly an extended love letter, My Biggest Lie is an attempt at sincere self-expression, and an examination of contemporary culture and the difficulties of communication in our technologically fraught era... Rewarding and ambitious...
