Product description



‘A triumph of simple beauty’

‘I Know This Much Is True never grapples with anything less than life’s biggest questions… a modern-day Dostoyevsky’
New York Times

‘Every now and then a book comes along that sets new standards for writers and readers alike. Wally Lamb’s latest novel is stunning – and even that might be an understatement’
Associated Press

‘A modern Greek tragedy… [Lamb’s] success is to present this with terrific readability, tenderness, optimism and, most surprisingly, wit… The hallmark of the book is fine writing and a commendable depth of characterisation’
The Times

‘Wally Lamb’s achievement is to force you to feel Dominick’s pain… the events in Dominick’s everyday nightmare are presented with a sneaky simplicity which generates emotional tension’
Daily Telegraph

About the Author

Wally Lamb’s first novel, ‘She’s Come Undone’, won rave reviews when it was published in 1992. It was a finalist in the ‘Los Angeles Times’ First Novel Award, a Top Ten book for ‘People’ magazine and a Notable Book for the ‘New York Times’. Both ‘She’s Come Undone’ and ‘I Know This Much Is True’ have been chosen for Oprah’s Book Club. Wally Lamb now teaches writing at the University of Connecticut. He lives in Connecticut with his wife and their three sons.
