A Book of Untruths [9780571331666]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
A Book of Untruths is a family story told through a series of lies. Each short chapter features one of these lies and each lie builds to form a picture of a life-Miranda Doyle's life as she struggles to understand her complicated family and her own place within it. This is a book about love, family and marriage. It is about the fallibility of human beings and the terrible things we do to one another. It is about the ways we get at-or avoid-the truth. And it is about storytelling itself: how we build a sense of ourselves and our place in the world. A Book of Untruths is a surprising, shocking and invigorating book that edges towards the truth through an engagement with falsehood. It brings questions to its readers; not answers.
AUTHOR: Miranda Doyle graduated from an MA at Goldsmiths in Creative & Life Writing with distinction and has been mentored through the Arts Council Escalator Scheme. Her autobiographical story, Autopsy, was selected by Irvine Welsh for The Scottish Book Trust for inclusion in its Days Like This Anthology, and broadcast on Radio Scotland. A Book of Untruths is her debut book.
