Review of 'Keepers of Truth'

The Keepers of Truth by Michael Collins reviewed by Terenure Library Readers Group.

Written in wonderful, evocative prose that counterpoints its gritty subject matter, this book is set in 1970s U.S.A. and in it, Collins explores the downside of American society. We meet people who have never got their share of the American Dream, or who have sunk to the bottom in the New World. The story unravels around a case of presumed patricide and we are brought by Bill, our buddy narrator, through the lives of the disaffected, looking for clues. This journey is more important than any ending and there is no neat resolution; instead, we are nudged towards deciding for ourselves what's been going on, and what happens next. Read this book.
