Summary:

#1 New York Times Bestseller and Oprah Book Club selection

'Thoughtful . . . heart-wrenching . . . . An exercise in soul-baring storytelling—with the soul belonging to 20th-century America itself. It's hard to read and to stop reading, and impossible to forget.'  — USA Today

Dominick Birdsey, a forty-year-old housepainter living in Three Rivers, Connecticut, finds his subdued life greatly disturbed when his identical twin brother Thomas, a paranoid schizophrenic, commits a shocking act of self-mutilation. Dominick is forced to care for his brother as well as confront dark secrets and pain he has buried deep within himself—a journey of the soul that takes him beyond his blue-collar New England town to Sicily’s Mount Etna, the birthplace of his grandfather and namesake. Coming to terms with his life and lineage, Dominick struggles to find forgiveness and finally rebuild himself beyond the haunted shadow of his troubled twin.

I Know This Much Is True is a masterfully told story of alienation and connection, power and abuse, devastation and renewal—an unforgettable masterpiece.

    This was my first selection trying audiobooks.com. I agree with Sasha McInnis. Very disappointing. The second half is incredibly important to the story. My favorite part in fact. Also, I was expecting the narrator to be George Guidell. I was not impressed with Ken Howard or that the audiobook was abridged.

  • Courtney McDonald

    The idea of this book sounded intriguing but the author didn't strike my interest at all. At first I was into it but the book just had a negative aura that pulled me away from enjoying it.

    How can this book only be ~5 hours when its ~900 pages?
