I Know This Much is True

by Wally Lamb

What a book! It's a long time since I have been gripped, entranced, held captive by a narrative such as this. From page one to page 897, I cared deeply about the fate of Dominick and Thomas Birdsey. There is no superfluous text, every word, sentence, paragraph and page is compulsive reading. An insight into the frightening world of schizophrenia and a whole book debate on the nature vs nurture theory. Read it!


When you're the brother of a schizophrenic identical twin, the trick thing about saving yourself is the blood it leaves on your hands - the little inconvenience of the look alike corpse at your feet. And if you're into survival of the fittest and being your brother's keeper - if you've promised your dying mother - then say so long to sleep and hello to the middle of the night ...
