”What do you look for in a city?” It’s a question Roger Morgan, the civic pioneer at the heart of Lynch’s novel, asks more than once, referring to his drizzly hometown of Seattle. Truth Like the Sun skips through the city’s history from 1962, when Morgan helps organize the World’s Fair that put it on the map, to 2001, when he decides to run for mayor. Lynch presents the more recent chapters through the eyes of an ambitious muckraker pillaging Morgan’s closets for skeletons, and it’s the author’s own journalistic eye for detail that turns the stereotypically gray city into something vibrantly colorful.
