The Liar vs. The Giver

This morning's Washington Post The Writing Life feature is by Lois Lowry, author of, among other YA and children's books, The Giver. Written in first person, the article relates how she became a writer because she found lying such a useful talent. It's only half tongue in cheek.

There was a related article on her life with some details I had not known, like she was born in Hawaii because her father was stationed there (me, too!) and she married at 19 (not me!).

Lowry sounds like a fascinating person. But then writers so often are.
