FROM THIS EPISODE

The Literary Liars Club recently expanded its roster. The latest scandal involves a suburban white woman writing as a half-white, half-Indian inner-city gangbanger. Why is there such a proliferation of fake memoirs? Why not just sell an imaginary story as fiction? Jonathan Kirsch speaks with novelists, editors and publishers.
