"From servant girls who made themselves princesses and the footman who turned cannibal chief, to Red Indians born hundreds of miles from the nearest tepee, university professors and surgeons with no qualifications but their genius, and men from all walks of life who turned out, on their deaths, to be women, Sarah Burton's brilliant exposition of the bold and bizarre world of the impostor is peopled by a huge cast of adventurers and escapologists." "Most of them begin life as losers simply by virtue of their social position. Unable to change the world, they transform themselves and are reborn, this time having awarded themselves a sporting change. Sarah Burton tells a wealth of extraordinary stories, both tragic and comic, in which the reality behind these lives lived as lies is an fascinating as the impostors themselves."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
