Five old friends on the cusp of middle age meet at their fifteen year Harvard reunion and wonder if they’re wasting or realising their potential. And then their erstwhile classmate, the President’s much despised son, turns up dead. With razor sharp wit and focus, the hugely enjoyable Life After Truth explores friendship, parenthood, success and fame, as it examines how we narrate the stories of our lives, and the gap between our inner selves and the persona we present to the world.
