The Truth Game

£15.00

As a teenager Vanessa plays a game with her father: they take turns to ask a question and the other must answer truthfully. One day Vanessa asks: ‘Apart from with Mummy, have you ever been so in love that you would have liked to marry someone else?’ Her father is visibly shaken and as the truth emerges it becomes clear why…

Told as a series of fourteen lucid vignettes in an original and innovative way, The Truth Game is both a haunting exploration of love, loss and grief and a portrait of the discontent at the heart of one of Britain’s most eminent families. Nicolson distils the concept of truth down to the extraordinary experiences of real-life individuals with shocking and moving consequences.
