Is the truth really what we make it?

From the inimitable Michael Palin, a warm and intelligent novel about good intentions and human frailty.

'A feel-good story leaving the reader on a real high' OBSERVER

Keith Mabbut has been offered the opportunity of a lifetime - to pen the biography of the elusive Hamish Melville, a highly influential activist and humanitarian. Feeling that his life has reached a crossroad, he seizes the chance to write something meaningful.

His search to find out the real story behind the legend takes Mabbut to the lush landscapes and environmental hotspots of India. The more he discovers about Melville, the more he admires him - and the more he connects with an idealist who wanted to make a difference. But is his quarry really who he claims to be? As Keith discovers, the truth can be whatever we make it...

“Gentle & Dry Witted”

The thing that I've found when reading fiction written by very famous people, is that I tend to see the author when I'm reading, rather than the characters. So, for me, Keith Mabbut looks like Michael Palin,... More

“Ecology, identity and a dollop of fun”

I wasn’t sure what to expect from a first novel with an ecological slant by Michael Palin but I am very pleased to have given it a chance.
