Two-time Booker Prize winner Peter Carey, author of True History of the Kelly Gang, crafts a brilliantly fictionalized take on the greatest hoax in Australia's colorful history. In the 1950s poet Christopher Chubb composes a body of sexually charged poems. Chubb then dupes a trendy literary magazine into believing the poems were composed by a deceased genius named Bob McCorkle. The trick works, but soon the imaginary poet comes to life and begins tormenting his creator. With its breathtaking scope and limitless inventiveness, My Life as a Fake is a triumph of the imagination.
