“An exercise in highly provocative, original thinking, Pablo Helguera's The Parable Conference asks loads of inconvenient questions about art, only to answer them through a series of entertaining fictions. "Is there too much art in the world?" "How should art be taught?" And, "Why do we want to relive Andy Warhol?" Helguera continues a long if recently disused tradition of creative fibbing in this enlightening epistolary book. Prophets and preachers use lies to tell the truth--so why shouldn't artists?”

—Christian Viveros-Faune, art critic, The Village Voice

“Pablo Helguera is a splendid liar, a first-class storyteller, a curious mind constantly in search of stories, a creator of parallel universes and impossible characters living in credible situations, which invariably probe our certainties, intuition and knowledge.”

—Naief Yehya, author and critic
