The characters of Christopher Sorrentino's The Fugitives (Simon & Schuster) are unreliable narrators. They're liars who hide the truth, not only from themselves but ultimately from the reader. The author admits to hijacking the novel from their false narratives. He turns the novel over to a noir-like plotted narrative. But even that possible resolution can't be trusted as this writer uses reprehensible characters to play with the challenge of finding truth.
