After winning both popular and critical acclaim with his first novel, She's Come Undone, New York Times best-selling author Wally Lamb is back with another masterpiece. Joining its predecessor as an Oprah's Book Club selection, I Know This Much is True is a mystical, deeply moving saga of personal growth and survival. All his life, Dominick Birdsey has been angry and afraid. The elusive identity of his biological father, a bullying adoptive father, and a paranoid schizophrenic identical twin have haunted his struggle for sanity and wholeness. Now his brother has committed an unthinkable act, and middle-aged Dominick is in a tailspin. As he turns to his grandfather's handwritten memoir for answers to the secrets locked within himself, he discovers some unexpected lessons about the complexities of being human. George Guidall's exquisite narration highlights the joyous, profound, and mystical experience of arriving with Dominick at comforting answers to some of life's most unsettling questions. A special interview with the author is on the final tape of this recording.

I read this book when it first came out and was really looking forward to the audibook. Listening to the audiobook was awesome and I remembered why this was one of my favorite books. Wally Lamb is a GENIUS! I wait patiently for him to write his next book. He swtiches his stories up sp drastically that it is always a surprise. He never just adds another book in which the characters are the same like a lot of authors. Brilliant!!!
