A Little White Lie
March 3, 2023
A small college, desperate to make a splash in the literary world, thinks they have found Shriver, a famous writer who has been in hiding for 20 years. Unfortunately, the person they have located is a different Shriver, a down-on-his-luck handyman who has never read a book in his life and has trouble telling the difference between his imagination and reality. With nothing to lose, this Shriver accepts the invitation to attend the college's literary festival. There he finds himself surrounded by adoring fans, an eccentric group of writers and wannabe writers and meets a professor of English who captures his heart. But things come crashing down when the “real” writer shows up to expose him, posing a threat to the college and the reputation of the English professor. But who is the real Shriver? A story about imposter syndrome, mistaken identity, and the difficulty of really being yourself.
