The newest book from Linden MacIntyre is called Why Men Lie. It’s the conclusion to his Cape Breton trilogy which began with The Long Stretch in 1999, and was followed by The Bishop’s Man, which won the 2009 Scotiabank Giller Prize. In this novel we see men through the eyes of Effie MacAskill Gillis, she’s the sister to the bishop, Duncan MacAskill of the last book. We’ll get Mr. MacIntyre, who joins me now, to tell us about the book, we’ll ask him why men lie, and more. Linden MacIntyre is the co-host of the fifth estate, and the winner of at least nine Gemini Awards for broadcast journalism. The book is published by Random House. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, Linden MacIntyre; Mr. MacIntyre, good morning.
