Revelations. We present a façade to the world and the “truth” we tell even ourselves may not get to the root of who we are. In her novel titled, The Authenticity Project, Clare Pooley uses a clever conceit to lead characters to reveal their true selves: a plain journal in which individuals have disclosed themselves and left the journal for others to find. What follows is part romantic comedy and part deep insight into the nature of our human connections. If reading this book doesn’t uplift you, I don’t know what to suggest, except perhaps reading another novel by the prolific Alexander McCall Smith.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
