"A story about a solitary green notebook that brings together six strangers and leads to unexpected friendship, and even love--think Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine meets Love, Actually "Everybody lies about their lives. What would happen if you shared the truth?" This is the question that Julian Jessop, an eccentric, seventy-nine-year-old artist, poses within a pale green exercise book that he labels The Authenticity Project, before leaving it behind in Monica's Café. When Monica discovers Julian's abandoned notebook, not only does she add her own story to the book, she is determined to find a way to help Julian feel less lonely. And so it goes with the others who find the green notebook that will soon contain their deepest selves. It will also knit the group together In Real Life at Monica's Cafe, where they'll discover the thrill and sometime-risk of being completely honest--and, for some, find unexpected love. With a cast of characters who are by turns quirky and funny, heartbreakingly sad and painfully true-to-life, The Authenticity Project is a novel readers will take to their hearts and read with unabashed pleasure"--… (mer)

This was a warm and endearing novel about truth, friendship, integrity, and the power of connection. I was intrigued by the premise, while the various characters and their situations kept me reading. Loved the quirky and humorous direction of the plot, and the interconnectivity of the characters and their lives. And there were a few surprises that took the book from predictable to fresh and entertaining. If you're looking for a contemporary novel that is sharply insightful about honesty and image, I recommend this engaging feel-good story. ( )

Cleverly constructed novel built around being honest with friends and family. Julian, a fading artist decides he finally admit to his loneliness, which he puts into writing and .eaves in Monica's cafe in Fulham. This sets off a chain of events, starting with Monica's addition to Julian's Authenticity Project, which stretches to Thailand and back. Everyone reading and adding to Julian's book finds themselves changed, for the better and the local community as well. A feel-good story for 2021. ( )

Very readable book. Some nice surprises. I am not a fan of social influences in books. ( )

Wonderfully fun character-driven story with a few unexpected twists. ( )

Simple and contrived, but not totally unworthy. Book club discussion made me see more value than I thought. ( )
