"The Patron Saint of Literary Street Urchins."
New York Times

Jenni Fagan wrote TRUTH whilst travelling across the USA in 2017, taking in New York, Woodstock, Detroit, Michigan, Chicago, Oregon, Crater Lake, Redwoods, San Francisco, grifter towns, LA, San Diego. This road trip was part of the Outriders Project via Edinburgh International Book Festival. Ms Fagan's journey led her to consider questions on the nature of truth, be that personal, philosophical or political. This is the result.
