Lies Like Truth, or, A Little Bit of Luck and a Dash of Larceny - John Godley

6 USD
John Godley's probing, playful long form essay on the interrelated output and destinies of the master forger Elmyr de Hory, The Autobiography of Howard Hughes author Clifford Irving, Howard Hughes himself, and Orson Welles, who brought them altogether in F is for Fake, his masterful cinematic meditation on the the confluence of fakery and reality. First published in Bunnyhop Magazine's "Fake" issue in 2000, this is a complete and unabridged version of the little-known but seminal exploration of the compulsion to believe in coincidence, magic, masterpieces and professional liars. With added illustrations and photographs.
