Newest Trend: Faux Memoirs!!!!

This past week or so it has all been about writing Fake Memoirs. It’s so trendy that someone at Slate put up a great list of “Don’ts” for the genre. When I Write a Fabricated Memoir, I Will.... and the NYT has created a A Family Tree of Literary Fakers.

Congratualtions to James Frey for beginning the most recent spate of fakes. Double-thumbs up to Margaret B. Jones. I had Ms. Jones’ book on my reading list!
