Capturing conversations held with strangers and acquaintances, close friends and family, Painted Lips Don't Lie distills everyday human interactions into word portraits that reveal the fears, secrets, humor, and longings that connect people, one to another, all around the globe. Authored by Malika Ali Harding and illustrated by Brian Ali Harding, Painted Lips is a blog-to-book archive of unexpected encounters. New anecdotes are added twice monthly, on the first and the fifteenth, like a good government check.
