I Know This Much Is True
When Thomas Birdsey cuts his own hand off in a library to protest the Iraqi War, his twin brother, Dominick is at a loss as to what to do. Thomas's mental illness has gotten progressively worse, making it difficult to care for him but institutionalization is not what Dominick wants for his brother.
This book traces the history of these brothers and their family to attempt unravel the mysteries in their lives, including who their father is.
This is one of my favorite books of all time. I love the twists and turns in the plot and the development of the character, Dominick. It is a hefty novel but well worth the read in my opinion.
