What to Read When the World Is Unreliable


Right now, our government is filled with unreliable narrators. Robert Mueller, former FBI director, has been appointed as special prosecutor to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 US election and the Trump administration’s ties to Russia, following two chaotic weeks that included former Acting Attorney General Sally Yate’s testimony regarding Michael Flynn, the firing of FBI Director James Comey, Trump proudly sharing high-level information with Russian diplomats… the list goes on.

No one seems to be telling the truth and honestly, who knows what the hell is really going on, let alone what will come of it? Instead of sorting through all that trash this weekend, we suggest taking a break with some unreliable narrators in the far more worthwhile novels below.


Sorry to Disrupt the Peace by Patty Yumi Cottrell


The Likeness by Tana French


The Horned Man by James Lasdun


Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn


House of Leaves by Mark Danielewski


The Life of Pi by Yann Martel


The Fall by Albert Camus


Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger


And who could forget the Bible?
