Three lives, one unreliable narrator and the inventor of the Garamond typeface. What is the connection?

This is All a Lie opens with Ray leaving is mistress, Nancy, for the final time. Ray’s wife, Tulah, is filled with denial when she is drawn into Ray’s messy affair. What are the consequences of losing intimacy? Who is Claude Garamond? The answers lie within… perhaps.
