"if good things happen, does it matter that they are built on a foundation of lies? Two very bad things happen early in the show. One character takes his own life, and Evan—perhaps through no fault of his own—is drawn into the drama, and then exacerbates the drama in an attempt to bring some comfort to a grieving family..."
This struck me as an odd slant on the narrative line and questions posed.
And I've seen the show in NYC, and read it. Is all of this really true:
"But thanks to Evan's lies, which get larger and more detailed and messier as time goes by, this tragedy begins to turn around a community and bring it together as never before. A family begins to care for each other in a way that has clearly been lacking. A school comes together and cliques give way to a sense of belonging. An entire nation, linked by social media, is lifted by an inspiring story—which they have no idea is complete bullshit."
