Lies can travel far and change lives. In her excellent novel Liar, Israeli novelist and scriptwriter Ayelet Gundar-Goshen considers the morality of lying. 17-year-old Nofar goes from invisible to in-demand when she lies about being sexually attacked. The two witnesses, for reasons of their own, stay silent, and the repercussions twist family relationships. Ayelet’s exploration of a moral dilemma is also the basis for her superb earlier novel Waking Lions, and she will discuss what draws her to these complex human issues with host Rachel Cooke.

Ayelet is a clinical psychologist as well as an award-winning writer. Her debut One Night, Markovitch won three prizes, including the prestigious Sapir Prize. Ayelet’s work has been translated from the Hebrew by Sondra Silverston.
