In his remarkable new noveltwo-time Booker Prize winner Peter Cey creates a creature as indelkible as Frankenstein.  Using as a springboard a real literary hoax that transfixed Australia in his boyhood, Peter Carey wickedly and ruefully explores how a phantom poet taunts, haunts and otherwise destroys his maker, pursuing him from Melbourne to a seedy, sweaty, bitter ending in the tropical chaos of Kuala Lumpur.  A manic. endearing and penetrating ode to fakery at its most truthful and truth at its most fake.  My Life as a Fake penetrates to the heart of the alchemy of literature itself.
