Not Untrue and Not Unkind
Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2009.
In Dublin, a newspaper editor is found dead. One of his colleagues, Owen Simmons, discovers a dossier on the dead man's desk. And in the dossier Owen finds a photograph, which brings him back, once again, to a dusty road in Africa and to the woman he once loved ...
Not Untrue and Not Unkind is Owen's story - a gripping story of friendship, rivalry and betrayal amongst a group of journalists and photographers covering Africa's wars. A remarkably assured and mature debut, it is a tale utterly for our times.
