Lynn Michell's novel, 'White Lies' is one of the best modern novels I've read. Published by Linen Press. See link - www.linenpressbooks.co.uk
The story is set in Kenya and the time of the Maumau uprisings, and the white community there. The story is told told through the memories of the narrators old father and the white lies are ultimately told.
If you are in the UK, readily available in good bookstores such as Waterstones or Amazon etc.
