Prepare to have your heart warmed, tickled, shattered, and put back together with sticky tape as Uncle Hercules and other lies barrels through a collection of tender and tenderised non-fictions.

Shortlisted for the Scribe Non-fiction Prize, Uncle Hercules and other lies is gooey with incroyable half-fibs, formative moments, and bad life choices. Think Lydia Davis meets Arthur Bradford but on a chair lift; or John Waters meets Leslie Knope by a happenchance procured by a snake. Also, Skyrim Dog.

Industry Reviews

'Wonderful, infectious and genuinely hilarious. Patrick Lenton is the Cormac McCarthy of being a huge idiot.' - Ben Jenkins (Story Club, Dragon Friends, The Checkout)

'Patrick's writing insipires something unusual in me: the desire to hear men tell me stories.' - Rebecca Shaw (No To Feminism, Get Krack!n, Tonightly)

'Like Sedaris, Lenton is hugely entertaining, which renders occasional moments of emotional tenderness all the more poignant.' - Books+Publishing
