An elephant trainer in Italy, a writer-in-residence for an archaeological dig in Belize, and a commentator on Mennonites from afar, Byron Rempel gets around. In Truth is Naked, All Others Pay Cash, he reaches beyond established literary genres into somewhat uncharted territory. Whereas many novels are thinly disguised autobiography, Rempel believes it is much more interesting when we imagine our own lives, and call it a memoir.Whether searching for the origins of pacifist Mennonites among murderers and polygamists, shovelling elephant droppings, or confronted with the slow deterioration of his father's brain, Rempel addresses the questions that haunt all of us: Where are we going, why, and what will it cost us, not including airport tax? The result is a collection of memories that are quite hilarious, often poignant and occasionally believable.
