#1 NATIONAL BESTSELLER
“A novel for our time…relatable.”
—Winnipeg Free Press
“Absolutely brilliant…. Why Men Lie has the flavour of a peaty single-malt.”
—The Globe and Mail
“Powerful and compelling…. MacIntyre has spent three novels investigating…dark corners of the past, both personal and societal; in Why Men Lie, there may be no answers, but there is at least a hint of light.”
—Robert J. Wiersema, National Post
“A nuanced novel.... There’s an odd, mesmerizing pull to the tale; MacIntyre can build suspense from thin air.... [His] gift is capturing the poetic thrum of life’s unanswered questions and ragged endings. That his book is left with one is the price paid.”
“Treatises on the battle of the sexes are often flawed in execution, but Linden MacIntyre’s new novel rings true.”
Linden MacIntyre is a co-host of the fifth estate and the winner of nine Gemini Awards for broadcast journalism. His bestselling first novel, The Long Stretch, was nominated for a CBA Libris Award and his boyhood memoir, Causeway: A Passage from Innocence, was a Globe and Mail Best Book of 2006, and won both the Edna Staebler Award for Creative Non-Fiction and the Evelyn Richardson Prize. His second novel, The Bishop’s Man, was a #1 national bestseller, won the Scotiabank Giller Prize, the Dartmouth Book Award and the CBA Libris Fiction Book of the Year, and has been published in the U.K. and the U.S. and has been translated into eight languages.
At first reaction, "Why Men Lie" suffers by comparison with "The Bishop's Man" because the issues at stake are less clear. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Michael Bridger

This was a well written book. Moved in different directions throughout, and had a surprise ending. I read this through a reading group and everyone loved the book.Published on June 19 2013 by Verna Brown
The author assumed the voice of a female...challenging but successful. JC remained enigmatic to the end... Read morePublished on June 9 2013 by Bev Armstrong
I don't like the story as much as the Bishop's Man. And I'm still reading it..... Have not read the Long Strech yet. I wished you would stop asking me about the books I buy. Read morePublished on May 5 2013 by Karin Barth
Enjoyed the book. Especially as a Torontonian- the book takes place between Cape Breton and Toronto. Some twists and many interesting characters. Sad overall. Read morePublished on April 27 2013 by Maya
A few stories within a story, took a bit of time to sense the rhythm of the book, not the ending I was hoping for. Read morePublished on March 29 2013 by Ferocious Reader
This book goes no where with the story telling. If Effie is suppose to have hope, you sure wouldn't know it. There is no happiness and hopefulness. Read morePublished on March 17 2013 by Susan M. Madden
