Synopsis

Oprah's latest book club selection!New York Times Best SellerAt 40, Dominick Birdsey's entire life has been compromised and constricted by anger and fear: by the schizophrenic twin brother he both deeply loves and resents, and by the past they shared with their adoptive father, Ray, a spit-and polish ex-Navy man and their long-suffering mother, Concettina, a timid, self-conscious woman.Born in the waning moments of 1949 and the opening minutes of 1950, the boys are physical mirror images who grow into separate yet connected entities. But Dominick's talent for survival his escape from Ray's wrath and the genetic fate that is Thomas will be put to the ultimate test when Thomas, a Bible-spouting zealot, commits an unthinkable act that threatens the tenuous balance of both his and Dominick's lives.Set against the vivid panoply of twentieth century America and filled with richly drawn, memorable characters, this deeply moving and thoroughly satisfying story brings to light humanity's deepest needs and fears, of our aloneness, our desire for love and acceptance, and our struggle to survive at all costs. Joyous, mystical, and exquisitely written, I Know This Much Is True is an extraordinary audio experience that will leave no listener untouched.

Wally Lamb is amazing! I loved this book as much as his first, 'She's Come Undone.' I am waiting for him to write another novel!

AudiobooksNow review by Lisa on 2008-01-07 12:29:19

the characters are what make this book worth reading. i found there to be too many sub-stories which were drawn out in far too much detail. and way, way too much graphic sexual content for my liking - gratuitous filler. i wouldn't recommend this book.
