Not Untrue and Not Unkind

A novel by

Booker Prize Best Novel (nominee)
A riveting novel of friendship, rivalry, and betrayal, set against the lush but tumultuous backdrop of war-torn Africa.

In Dublin, a newspaper editor called Cartwright is found dead. One of his colleagues, Owen Simmons, discovers a dossier on Cartwright's desk containing a photograph that brings him back to a dusty road in Africa and to a woman he once loved.

Not Untrue & Not Unkind is Owen's story, a gripping tale of friendship, rivalry, and betrayal among a group of journalists and photographers covering Africa's wars. It is an astonishingly powerful and accomplished debut that immediately establishes Ed O'Loughlin as a mature master of the novel form.
