Ernesto Mallo


Autobiography for Quais du Polar

I was raised in a family of liars. My father was a functional liar, he would lie in order to obtain something or hide something. My mother was a prestige liar, she would invent anything that enhances her natural charm. My brother is a pathological liar who cannot tell the difference between truth and lie. For my part, I was not willing to pay the high price and assume the hard work lying demands, so I became a fiction writer. If you want me to lie, you’ll have to pay me . In fact, writing is the best lifesaver I could get.
