Harold Pinter's impassioned - and quite brilliant - nobel lecture Art, Truth and Politics (freely available online) has been turned into a book by Route ("a cultural organisation and a home for contemporary story telling and ideas"):

Pinter speaks about the nature of truth; he gives some insight into his work and his creative process and makes the distinction between political theatre and political satire. The majority of his speech however is reserved for his position as a citizen. He talks of political language as not being interested in the truth but of power, and that language is employed to keep truth at bay.
