By Jostein Gaarder
Read by Chris Courtenay
From the internationally bestselling author of Sophie's World, a novel about loneliness, language, lies and the power of storytelling.
From the creative genius of Jostein Gaarder comes a beautiful novel about loneliness and the power of words.
Jakop is a lonely man.
Divorced from his wife, with no friends apart from his constant companion Pelle, he spends his life attending the funerals of people he doesn't know, obscuring his identity in a web of improbable lies.
As his addiction to storytelling spirals out of control, he is forced to reconcile his love of language and stories with the ever more urgent need for human connection.
An Unreliable Man is a moving and thought-provoking novel about loneliness and truth, about seeking a place in the world, and about how language and storytelling give our lives meaning.
Decades after his global bestseller Sophie's World, Jostein Gaarder has written a poignant and funny book for our times - full of life and hope.
