Publisher's Summary

In Dublin, a newspaper editor called Cartwright is found dead. One of his colleagues, Owen Simmons, discovers a dossier on Cartwright’s desk containing a photograph that brings him back to a dusty road in Africa and to a woman he once loved.

Not Untrue & Not Unkind is Owen’s story, a gripping tale of friendship, rivalry, and betrayal 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.

    "Great book - but difficut listen"

    This contender for the Man Booker prize in 2010 is a first rate story of reporters in Rwanda & Zaire during the horrible events of the 1990s. It is well and intricately told and reminded me of John LeCarre's understated style. Great book, but it requires attention. I found I couldn't follow it on Audible and I ended up purchasing a written version, which I loved. The reader, Gerald Doyle, uses a Scottish accent which is probably fitting, but his lilt made it sound as if every sentence ended with a question mark. It distracted me. I recommend listening to a sample before you buy.
