Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On the afternoon of October 12, 1990, my twin brother, Thomas, entered the Three Rivers, Connecticut, public library, retreated to one of the rear study carrels, and prayed to God the sacrifice he was about to commit would be deemed acceptable. . . .

One of the most acclaimed novels of our time, Wally Lamb's I Know This Much Is True is a story of alienation and connection, devastation and renewal, at once joyous, heartbreaking, poignant, mystical, and powerfully, profoundly human.

Synopsis:

An epic contemporary novel, which was a No.1 bestseller in the States in the summer of 1998, and which tells the story of a pair of identical twins - one a paranoid schizophrenic and the other whose life is dominated by resentment for his brother. "...never grapples with anything less than life's biggest questions. A modern day Dostoevsky" "New York Times". "..fine writing and a commendable depth of characterisation" "The Times".
