Identifying Memoir Hoaxers
Margaret Soltan makes an interesting observation on her blog
about all the recent memoir hoaxers. She writes:
Consider these author photos of a few (there are many more) recent memoir hoaxers.
What do they have in common? They all say: Look directly at my big sad eyes. I have deeply suffered.
Perhaps we can ask legitimate writers to assume a different pose. That way we can identify the hoaxers.
