Review - The Truth by Michael Palin

Palin's second novel is the story of an ageing writer who yearns for success and he is planning his great novel when he is offered the biography of one of the world's heroes, a humanitarian and environmental activist, Hamish Melville. This is a thoughtful and layered look at fame and how it is used and abused. If you seek after truth, whose truth are you seeking? Keith's adventures in following his subject eventually lead him to understand himself. I enjoyed this book. Wendy
