'A remakable first novel- edgy, angry and utterly individual'
Chrisopher Hope

'I could just as easily leave Cartwright out of this. But he's forced his way into it, dust reassembling itself . . .

Years after I stopped caring, after I gave up all the play-acting, I learn that someone else was watching all along.'

In Dublin, a newspaper editor called Cartwright commits suicide. One of his colleagues, Owen Simmons, discovers a dossier on Cartwright's desk. And in the dossier Owen finds a photograph, which brings him back, once again, to a dusty road in Africa and to the woman he once loved . . .

Not Untrue and Not Unkind is Owen's story - a gripping story of friendship, rivalry and guilt among a group of journalists and photographers covering Africa's wars. It is an astonishingly powerful and accomplished debut that immediately establishes Ed o'Loughlin as a mature master of the novel form.
