A memoir about an unusual upbringing in a family fanatically devoted to honesty, and what came next. If you're like most people, you probably lied today. It may have been a small one, some insignificant falsehood meant to protect someone's feelings or guard your true thoughts. Now imagine if your parents had raised you to never lie, if they'd ingrained in you a compulsion to never lie, under any circumstances, withhold the truth and fail to speak your mind. It might be wonderfully freeing. Everyone else might not appreciate it as much. To be honest is Michael Leviton's extraordinary account of being raised in a family he calls a "little honesty cult".
