Charming, handsome and a pathological liar, Dorante has come to Paris seeking pleasure. He falls head over heels for the beautiful Clarice, but mistakes her name for that of her best friend, Lucrece. After lying his way into a world of trouble, can Dorante lie his way back out again? Richard Wilbur's sparkling translation of Pierre Corneille's saucy, fast-paced romantic romp is good naughty fun.
