Liarmouth, by John Waters

Staff Pick

In a career that spans well over 40 years, King of Filth John Waters still finds ways to shock audiences. Making his fiction debut with this "feel-bad romance," he delivers a story that is at once absurd, sleazy, hilarious--and charming. The action centers on Marsha Sprinkle, luggage thief and con artist extraordinaire, for whom telling the truth is impossible. She is surrounded by a ridiculous cast of characters, such as a daughter who has a vendetta against her, a dog undergoing an identity crisis, and a talking penis. Does any of it make sense? Probably not; this is a story that takes on any number of hilarious twists,and teems with ideas that only John Waters could come up with. Overall, it's irreverent and campy--mindless in the best possible ways.
