An Australian literary hoax lies at the core of My Life as a Fake, Peter Carey's captivating contemplation of the art world.

In steamy, fetid Kuala Lumpur in 1972, Sarah Wode-Douglass, editor of a London poetry journal, meets the mysterious Christopher Chubb. An Australian literary hoaxer, Chubb is carting around a manuscript likely filled with deceit. In this dubious work Sarah recognises a real genius. But whose genius? She is drawn into a fantastic story of imposture, murder, kidnapping and exile, which couldn't be true unless its teller were mad. Or perhaps haunted. My Life as a Fake is a Frankenstein story in which what is imagined comes to life and exacts its due.

'A charismatically furious piece of work, brilliantly meshing its ethical and artistic debate with a rich human drama.'
The Times

'Fast, furious and fantastical ... Carey is Australia's finest living novelist.'
The Guardian

'Reads like the impossible offspring of a fictional ménage-á-trois involving Pale Fire, Lord Jim, and Our Man in Havana.'
The Atlantic Monthly
