Social Email Us. Liars and Saints Maile Meloy With her debut story collection, Half in Love, prizewinning author Maile Meloy drew acclaim from readers and reviewers across the country.
But that doesn't leave Liars and Saints too bare to be pleasurable. Meloy is able to give convincing voice to a huge range of characters, from burnt-out ex-hippies to earnest toddlers, and she harnesses skilfully the power of the untold secrets that underlie the story.
In fact, although she was born and lives in America, her book reads Canadian, with its careful balancing of themes, its compassionate lies, its characters' over-conscientious love and worry and guilt. What you don't get is high drama, or even much in the way of simmering tension.
This is a saga that is most definitely not in the market for an Aga. Topics Books.
