Valerie Joy Kalynchuk’s Beauty is a Liar is the follow-up to her first Conundrum book, All Day Breakfast, which the Globe and Mail called “a disarming stream-of-consciousness novel”. Her new book blends poetic verse, staccato prose and collage, and veers back and forth between Winnipeg and Montreal, exploring a young woman’s troubled past and eventual redemption. Kalynchuk gives us an anti-nostalgic take on childhood.

“Kalynchuk has one of the most unique literary voices I have ever encountered.” – Jon Paul Fiorentino

“Exploring the schism between sunny social conventions and the narrator’s penchant for darker sights and sounds, Kalynchuk’s vignettes break with tradition, both in content and style.” – MRB
