The Man Booker Prize Best Novel (nominee)
A saga of secrets and lies in a single family across the generations -- set in London, New York, Paris, and Saint Petersburg. Inspired by the author's own family history, Pravda is a haunting chronicle of suspicion and loss, love and loyalty, and the destructive legacy of deceit. Thirty-two-year old Gabriel Clarke arrives in Saint Petersburg from London to find his mother dead in her apartment. Reeling from grief, Gabriel and his twin, Isabella, bury their mother and struggle to make sense of their loss. Unknown to either, their mother had long ago abandoned a son, Arkady, now an utterly amoral Russian predator determined to claim his birthright. Aided by an ex-seminarian and heroin addict whose addiction is destroying him, Arkady tracks down the twins, uncovering shocking secrets that had been hidden from them their entire lives.
