When Dionysius the Renegade faked a sophocles text in 400BC to humiliate an academic rival, he paved the way for two millennia of increasingly outlandish literary hoaxers. The path from mischievous stunt to more serious tricksters, like the controversial Oprah-duper James Frey, takes in every sort of writer: from the religious zealot to the bored student via the vengeful academic to the out-and-out joker. This engaging book is the first history of a fascinating sub-genre.
