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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Fantastic writing, great subject…The most exciting first novel I have read in many years.” Anne Enright, New York Times bestselling author
“A fine, darkly authoritative novel.” Joseph O’Neill, New York Times bestselling author
“With its intensely evocative language and atmosphere of looming tragedy, Not Untrue & Not Unkind is a book that far transcends the usual literary efforts of the former combat reporter. It stands as an elegy not only for Simmons’ band of colleagues but for a golden era of journalism.” New York Times Book Review
“A page-turning novel…O’Loughlin’s writing is vividly descriptive and evokes the sights and sounds of war-torn Africa…gripping.” Daily Mail (London)
“The writing…combines both straight reportage and lyricism.” Telegraph (London)
“O’Loughlin is a graceful writer. He can evoke a scene or a character in a few short sentences.” Guardian (London)
“Comes alive through vibrant but restrained prose. [O’Loughlin’s] words flow from the page, making it an easy, albeit sad, read…[A] great success.” Metro (London)
“Passionate, colorful…Love story and tragedy, mystery and professional satire (à la Evelyn Waugh’s Scoop) all rolled into one.” Irish Times
“One of the most powerful debut Irish novels of the last decade.” Sunday Business Post
“[O’Loughlin] set himself a lofty goal, and he largely achieves it…[Not Untrue & Not Unkind] vividly re-creates the life of a foreign correspondent.” Booklist
“O’Loughlin’s spare style is reminiscent of Hemingway’s…Contains equal measures of beauty and brutality.” Kirkus Reviews
