Post-truth and true adventure from Lightning/Eye Books
The time is ripe for a novel about the limitations of the 3,000-year-old experiment called democracy, and of demagogic leaders whose popularity owes more to outrageous stunts and claims, than to robust policies produced by so-called experts. It is no longer just the Islamic State that is prefaced by a sneering “so-called”.
So, Douglas Board offers Time of Lies
, a biting satirical novel that imagines the political landscape of the UK in 2020. Funny, thought-provoking and worryingly believable.
Rest assured, however, that our other forthcoming books still adhere to the conventions of Truth Britain:
Simon Edge’s The Hopkins Conundrum
deals very truly with the life of Gerard Manley Hopkins and the back-story to his most famous poem, The Wreck of the Deutschland
Jules Mountain’s gripping account of his ascent of Everest, thwarted by the disastrous 2015 earthquake, is truthfully recounted in Aftershock
And Michael Dobbs-Higginson: global adventurer, Buddhist monk, banker, and descendant of a Lord Mayor of London and a notorious pirate. His scarcely credible story is told in A Raindrop in the Ocean
, and it is all true!
