About the Author

Thom Satterlee is the author of The Stages: A Novel (2012) and Burning Wyclif: Poems (2006). He lives in Marion, Indiana.


"This deeply satisfying historical novel will keep you reading--and keep you examining your own conscience for the lies, big and small, that we tell. Thom Satterlee's subtle exploration of the memories of a seventeenth-century Anglican minister who came under the influence of John Milton brings to mind the reflective rhythms of Marilynne Robinson's Gilead. This is a tale full of surprises, told by an insightful craftsman."--Paul J. Willis, author of The Alpine Tales "Thom Satterlee's God's Liar, a novel narrated by a writer writing about a writer writing about still another writer, is--no surprise--about the power of language, the written word's potential to move, interrogate, affirm, offend, reveal, obscure, terrify, and comfort. We readers aren't only afforded opportunity to consider Milton's work in a new, intriguing light; we're also led to re-examine the troubled grace we see and hear in our own contemporary visions and voices."--Tom Noyes, author of Come by Here: A Novella and Stories "God's Liar vividly and rivetingly recreates the world that John Milton lived in during the years when London was riven by the plague. But it is really a novel about what it means to take risks, to compromise, and to sometimes fail--in other words, it's a novel about being human. And even if you are not someone who usually reads historic novels, you will be swept away by it."--Linda Mannheim, author of This Way to Departures "A comedy of manners . . . of the soul! What a delightful and unexpected novel, narrated by a wonderfully amicable liar you'll come to love and forgive. Thom Satterlee has written a surprising book that ponders the big questions while making you laugh and, occasionally, squirm. I hope Anthony Hopkins plays John Milton in the film!"--Tom Franklin, author of Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter
