My new book on the use and abuse of truth in politics, business, the media and everyday life is published in the UK today. It's been a fascinating journey, drafting the proposal in the months following Brexit, winning the book deals as Trump entered the White House, and then writing the book against a backdrop of fake news and political spin. TRUTH seems more relevant and essential than ever.
We held a launch party for TRUTH at Daunt Books in Marylebone High Street on Tuesday, publication day in the US and Canada. It was a wonderful event, and Daunt Books sold all of the 80 hardbacks they had ordered for the evening -- a "very rare" occurrence apparently.
Now it's time to tell people about the book! I'm writing articles, doing interviews, and will be appearing at literary festivals in Glasgow and Stratford. If you'd like to discuss a possible Truth event, feel free to contact me directly. Ask for TRUTH in any good bookshop -- they can order it for you if they don't have it -- or buy it online. I'd love to hear what you think.
