Description

“As phrases that can stop and startle you, hereâ€s just one. ‘My mother loves and hates

and heals and hurts with the same hands.†The noted spoken word artist has written a book of

essays that perform a memoir…. Thanks for writing this.― (Scott Simon, NPR)“Ikpi is not

the first to write about mental illness, but I canâ€t say Iâ€ve ever read a narrative about it like

this… her writing is yes, poetic and lyrical with tenderness and thoughtfulness but also funny.

Sheâ€s just so damn funny and her wit often makes her essays as humorous as they are

heartbreaking…. You want to root for her well being. You want to be more understanding of

others. And, for some of us, by the end of Iâ€m Telling The Truth, but Iâ€m Lying, you might

find yourself realizing you are no less guilty of telling yourself certain stories in order to deal with

trauma, secrets, and shame.― (Michael Arceneaux, Essence)“Bassey Ikpi is a human

miracle and I want to scream my joy from the rooftops that we are allowed to experience her

journey (as an artist, as a black woman, as a black woman dealing with mental illness!) in her

gorgeous book.― (Samantha Irby, author of We Are Never Meeting in Real Life and Meaty

)“Bassey Ikpiâ€s lyrical memoir-in-essays asks us to reframe the way we think about

memories, the stories we tell ourselves, the stories we tell other people, the stories we never tell,

and all the other ways we try to make sense of who we are in the world.― (GOOP)“The writing

in Iâ€m Telling the Truth, But Iâ€m Lying is wholly sincere and consistently slanted.

Thatâ€s so hard to pull off. No writer in the country does as much with short soulful sentences

as Bassey Ikpi. We will not think or talk about mental health or normalcy the same after reading

this momentous art object moonlighting as a colossal collection of essays.― (Kiese Laymon,

author of Heavy)“An intimate, extraordinary book that should transform the way we consider

and talk about mental health. Bassey Ikpiâ€s essays, in all their brutal honesty, throb with power

and grace—I defy anyone to read her work without being changed.― (Nicole Chung, author of

All You Can Ever Know)“Filled with lines, paragraphs and passages that both intrigue and

shock… in essence, the collection paints a personal picture of the normalcy of mental illness…

using visceral snapshots of memories from [Ikpiâ€s] childhood to her adult years.― (

People.com)“Iâ€m Telling the Truth, but Iâ€m Lying is a richness of layers, rewarding the

reader no matter which particular thread got you here: the experience of being African-born and

raised in America, the coming up of a gifted writer and performer, tracing the lineage of mental

illness through several generations, or the fleshing out of the literal highs and lows of bipolar II.
