Michael Palin The Truth

From the inimitable Michael Palin, a novel about the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth... When Keith Mabbut is asked to write the biography of the elusive Hamish Melville, an influential humanitarian, he sees an opportunity to connect with his idealistic younger self. But Keith’s publishers are keen to unearth dubious dealings in Melville’s past, leaving Keith with a dilemma: report the facts or bend the truth to suit the legend? Michael Palin starred in Monty Python’s Flying Circus and Ripping Yarns, and is now known for his travel writing and television documentaries. He lives in north London.
