Teaser Tuesdays: The Truth and Other Lies

This week my teaser lines come from The Truth and Other Lies, the debut novel by German screenwriter Sascha Arango (Atria Books, June 2015).
The liars among us will know that every lie must contain a certain amount of truth if it's to be convincing. A dash of truth is often enough, but it's indispensable, like the olive in the martini. (p.73)
Of course, I wouldn't know anything about that because I obviously ALWAYS tell the absolute truth. Well, don't you?

Oh, and I never drink martinis, either.


Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Jenn at A Daily Rhythm. If you'd like to read more teasers, or take part yourself, just head on over to her blog.

And please feel free to leave me a link to your Teaser Tuesday post in your comment here.


  1. I noticed this one recently on a blog, and I really love the idea of it. Great line: "A dash of truth is often enough, but it's indispensable, like the olive in the martini."

    I am hesitant to add more ARCs from NetGalley, as I got carried away when I first started. But I am thinking I must have this one!

    Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

  2. hmmm....yes, I always tell the truth but I am finding it is just better to keep my mouth shut, period. Can you believe I have never had a martini?

  3. Ooh, I really like this quote, very smooth - I'm picturing a suave, Bond-like character. Hope you enjoy!

  4. That's a great line. Like the comparison to an olive in a martini.

Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
