Twenty-Six Lies/One Truth Blurb

"Ben Peek’s Twenty-Six Lies/One Truth is inebriating, an absinthe of self-deception, a smoke-filled room of conflicted emotion, a hall of mirrors, each of them distorting both perception and reality. Ben Peek dances on the stepping stones of Ben Peek’s supposed life, leaping from philosophy to pop culture, from insight to angst. As one reads this remarkable work, the question arises, “what is the line between the art and the artist”? Peek knows. I know. But you cannot know, for certain, until you pick out the lies. Do you trust your judgement that much? Do you trust Ben Peek? What makes you so certain that you can crack the code of Twenty-Six Lies/One Truth? I’d be careful if I were you. Deception awaits."

That's a great wrap, champ! Really looking forward to seeing the finished book, and totally chuffed to be associated with it.

Dude! "An absinthe of deception?" That sounds like you should lisp when you say it. And here I thought you were a bourbon of bluntness. Or no more, certainly, than a cognac of culpability or a mexcal of madness. But what do I, a mere aperitif of insolence. know? ;)

Congrats. Looking forward to it.

Re: blurb
Well, at least it didn't turn out to be a cheap-draft-beer of what-the-fuck, like so many fictional autobiographies.

...you know, if we give booze away with the book, we'll sell more.
