Faking It

James Frey and JT Leroy stunned readers and publishers when it became clear they weren’t who they said they were, but they were hardly the first to pull a hoax. Paul Maliszewski was one of those literary fakers when he worked for a small business magazine. He explains how he did it and why in his book Fakers: Hoaxers, Con Artists, Conterfeiters and Other Great Pretenders.
