About Jim Lynch and Truth Like the Sun: Truth Like the Sun is a hugely entertaining political novel of urban intrigue set both in 1962, when Seattle hosted the World's Fair, and in 2001 after its transformation in the Microsoft Gold Rush. Janet Maslin, writing in the New York Times, said this: "Enveloping and propulsive...There is much marveling to be done as Truth Like the Sun unfolds. Lynch captures the excitement of a fair that proudly showed off the world of tomorrow, but inadvertently revealed more than it should have."
Jim Lynch grew up in the Seattle area and graduated from the University of Washington before bouncing around the country as a reporter for newspapers in Alaska, Virginia and for columnist Jack Anderson in Washington, DC. Returning to the Northwest, he wrote for the Spokane Spokesman-Review, the Portland Oregonian and the Seattle Times. His national honors along the way included the George Polk Award, the H.L. Mencken Award and Livingston Young Journalist Award for National Reporting. His novel, Border Songs, won the Washington State Book Award and is currently being adapted for television. He now lives in Olympia, Washington with his wife, Denise, and daughter, Grace.
