Sue Vice considers a wide range of 20th- and 21st century literary deceptions. These include  memoirs that were published as true accounts of such extreme experiences as surviving the
Holocaust, life in a Los Angeles gang, and rehabilitation from drug addiction. Each of these memoirs turned out to be either wholly
invented or substantially embellished. Equally, poetry by a survivor of Hiroshima, short stories by an Albanian writer, and novels by an American rent-boy and an Aboriginal woman,
have been shown to have authors whose biographies are as fictive as their published works. The book explores both why such texts
arise, including consideration of writers’ motives as well as pressures from the publishing industry, readers’ tastes and contemporary social issues, and also how such texts are
constructed, concluding with an assessment of their literary merit.
