I Know This Much is True Summary


I Know This Much is True by Wally Lamb

The #1 New York Times bestselling novel, now a major Sky Atlantic drama starring Mark Ruffalo as two identical twins, Thomas and Dominick.

Dominick Birdsey's whole existence is coloured by the knowledge that his twin brother can never be fully responsible for his frightening behaviour, while he himself has beaten the biochemical odds to remain sane. But at what cost?

This powerful, heartwrenching drama draws on the deepest human emotions: the need to know oneself, responsibility to family, the influence of hidden history. The result is a highly acclaimed novel of survival, written with great sensitivity.

I Know This Much is True Reviews


'A triumph of simple beauty'
Time

'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

'Lamb creates a nuanced picture of a flawed but decent man. And the questions that permeate the novel... contribute to a fully developed and triumphantly resolved exploration of one man's suffering and redemption'
Publishers Weekly

'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
