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:

The phenomenal #1 "New York Times" bestseller and Oprah's Book Club( pick is now in mass market paperback. This spellbinding novel of responsibility and family, betrayal and redemption is an exquisitely written, profoundly human masterpiece.

About the Author

Wally Lamb's two novels, She's Come Undone and I Know This Much Is True, were both number one New York Times bestsellers and selections of Oprah Winfrey's Book Club. He was the editor of Couldn't Keep It to Myself, a previous volume of essays from students in his writing workshop at York Correctional Institution. A volunteer facilitator at York for the past eight years, Lamb is currently at work on his third novel. He lives in Connecticut with his family.

This book was engaging from the beginning, and I really empathized with the characters. It was long enough so that the reader could really get to know the characters, and understand how they all impact one another. It was a very emotional story, more so because the author brings the characters to life so vividly.
