Sinopsis: This novel underlines the theme of loyalty, to one's class, to one's country, to one's ideals and to the truth. Catherine Hillary is commissioned to write the biography of a dead politician and in the process she gains a perspective on her own life, but at some cost. Iasabel Colegate is author of "The Shooting Party". "Deceits of Time" will be one of Hamish Hamilton's submissions for the Booker Prize.

From Publishers Weekly: Colegate's latest contribution to her sizable corpus of novels, of which the filmed The Shooting Party is the best known, is an extraordinarily accomplished excursus of subtle complexity into memory and the nature of truth, the search for meaning and the importance of character. Opinionated, outspoken but apolitical Catherine Hillery is puzzled when she is commissioned to write the authorized biography of Neil Campion, a World War I flying ace who was a prominent British politician of the '30s and '40s until his untimely death in a car accident on the day of Rudolf Hess's famous flight to England. Why a biography of Campion is of interest in the '80s is unclear, and Hillery has difficulty pinning down his character and motives. But in delving into the Campion family's past, Hillery is brought to reexamine her own marriage and relationship to her sons, and thereby herself. Her Italian daughter-in-law Etta's lover Alfred Madden, a Jewish refugee and orphan turned gossip columnist, helps unravel the mystery, rattling disturbing skeletons of the past. Colegate's superb craftsmanship becomes evident as the pieces of her intricately designed puzzle begin to fall into place. Her elegant prose and acuity of observation are qualities the reader can savor.
