About Uncle Hercules and Other Lies by Patrick Lenton
Uncle Hercules and Other Lies is a book of true stories about the nature of lies. The stories range from silly to sadly funny, and include stories that are about queer identity in action, rather than queer identity in theme—you're not gonna read a coming out story. But every story is queer culture! Also, Skyrim Dog. Shortlisted for the Scribe Non-fiction Prize, Uncle Hercules and other lies is gooey with incroyable half-fibs, formative moments, and bad life choices.
Patrick Lenton is the Entertainment Editor at Junkee, and the author of the short story ollection A Man Made Entirely of Bats. His fiction and essays have been published in The Best Australian Stories, Going Down Swinging, The Lifted Brow, Scum Mag, The Best Australian Comedy Writing, Growing Up Queer in Australia and more.
