9781402565342: My Life as a Fake

My Life as a Fake is Peter Carey's fictionalized take on one of the greatest literary hoaxes in Australia's history. In the 1950's, poet Christopher Chubb, wanting to teach Australia about pretension, composed a body of sexually charged poems. Chubb then duped a trendy literary magazine into believing the poems were composed by the late Bob McCorkle, an undiscovered genius. The trick worked, but soon Chubb found himself tormented by the very monster he created.
