Kelly Oxford On the Art of the L.A. Lie

We have one question for the author of Everything Is Perfect


Your debut memoir, out this month, is titled Everything Is Perfect When You’re a Liar. As a Canadian living in L.A., have you found yourself fibbing more?
I can’t think of an incident where I have lied to get something done or to get ahead. But if the rule isn’t written, then there isn’t a rule. There is always wiggle room. If there is a big line at a restaurant and an open table, then just sit down until somebody says you can’t sit there! I do that all the time.
