Page Turner

If you know me, you know I dislike few things more than fraudulent authors who get gargantuan advances while those like me still can't even get a proper rejection letter.
In “Love and Consequences,” a critically acclaimed memoir published last week, Margaret B. Jones wrote about her life as a half-white, half-Native American girl growing up in South-Central Los Angeles as a foster child among gang-bangers, running drugs for the Bloods.

The problem is that none of it is true.

The NY Times reports on this after they did a lavish colorful feature article on the fraudulent author. I'd say the Times' rep is pretty much shit by now.
