Imagine you are an immigration officer listening to the stories of refugees from war and persecution - how do you know when they are telling the truth? Should you believe them all and let them all in? How you can tell when they're lying simply to be allowed to settle in your country?
At the simplest level, this is the story of Maidenhair. But in the same way as truth becomes "a needle hidden in an egg, that was in a drake, that was in a hare, that was in something else, and all of it in turn was stuffed into a briefcase", so the book takes us on an intriguing journey into all the great legends of literature, and whether you can ever believe anything any story-teller ever says.
Are we all too credulous? I invite all sceptics to read the book and come along and it discuss with us!
