A friend talked about this book but she couldn't remember the title.
A famous writer's books are actually written by his wife, who writes compulsively, but doesn't care about publishing the books she writes. He is involved with another woman who is now pregnant. And so the novel begins...

Any ideas?

Ty | 7 comments Probably not that helpful, but th plot reminds me of the movie Big Eyes that just hit Aussie video stores. The main differences is that the wife is a painter but her husband sells her work as his own. Her paintings were unique because the subjects all had these large haunting eyes.

The Truth and Other Lies by Sascha Arango?

What's the genre or tone - mystery, dark, thriller, etc.?

Around what year did she read the book or think it was published?

Kris, I think this is the book!

My friend had read about the book in the NYT Book Review this summer. She did remember that the word "lies" was part of the title. When I read the description, it sure has the elements Anne described.

I'm marking this as SOLVED! Now I can get the book and read it.
