‘Pravda’ Duly Salvaged From Man Booker Long List

Houghton Mifflin has heeded our advice and published Edward Docx’s Pravda, once languishing away on the Man Booker Prize long list. Finally out this week in the States, Docx took a page from his own life for this tale of Anglo-Russian twins untangling their family history, with stops in St. Petersburg, London, Paris, and New York. Though it didn’t ultimately win the big prize — you try competing with Anne Enright and Ian McEwan — the drama-and-deceit-drenched pages stand up to the buzz and prize nod it received across the pond.
