Book Brag: Lies and Other Tall Tales

on August 19, 2013

You say whoppers and lies, Zora Neale Hurston says folklore and tall tales. We say funny and vividly, exquisitely illustrated by Christopher Myers.

“Way, way, back in the day…
Back when computers ran on steam power…
When they had to print the Internet in the newspapers…
Back when a quarter was only worth a dime…
There were lies,
Real Lies,
Zora Neale Hurston…
Came Down south to talk to the professional liars she growed up with.
She wrote down lies upon lies.
‘Cause she knew that there had been a decline In the quality of lies and it just
Gone get Worse, unless somebody did something….
These are some of the lies she collected.
I found them in a government office,
Which is where they are keeping all the lies nowadays.
And That’s the Truth.”

Zora Neale Hurston/Christopher Myers. Lies and Other Tall Tales.
