Tell Me the Truth About Love is a literary beach read. It combines vivid characters, plot twists and plenty of sex – with the elegant dialogue, psychological insight and sophisticated comedy we’ve come to expect from Erik Tarloff.”

    — George Stephanopoulos, ABC News


“All the complications of love are here, neatly plotted against a background of arts’ intrigue.  The characterization is clever yet rich in sympathy, even for those who stand in love’s way. This is among the best of Tarloff’s novels – funny, smart, and full of unexpected twists.”
