A story about "Truth: A Novel" — 3 years ago
Peter Temple is one of my favourite authors. He received a lot of attention for The Broken Shore, which, although I liked it, I felt that some of the shock and awe was a bit over enthusiastic. Truth, however, deserves every accolade that will hopefully be heaped upon it. The best book I’ve read in a long time. His dialogue and descriptions have been pared back to the bare minimum, but instead of detracting, this enhances his storytelling. Peter Temple, you can teach me how to bake bread anytime. If I could write a novel as good as this, I’d probably give up at that point, scared that nothing else would measure up.
