Tommi Parrish is an Australian cartoonist and art editor of the literary journal The Lifted Brow. Parrish's work has been shown in New York, Argentina, and across Australia, and they live in Montreal.
The Lie takes on material that's small in scope and
thoroughly familiar: emotions we've all felt before. On the other
hand, it's got the chutzpah to try and make us experience those
feelings in a whole new way.
The Lie and How We Told It is one of the best graphic novels I've read in the past two years. ... To see Parrish's work culminate in such a magnificent graphic novel is both satisfying and invigorating.
The Lie And How We Told It is a bold and confident statement of artistic intent that has elevated Parrish into the top tier of contemporary cartoonists.
