Ern Malley
The Sydney Morning Herald reports that Peter Carey is writing a novel about the Ern Malley hoax. It'll be titled My Life As A Fake. Ern Malley was the name of a poet who wowed Australia's Modernist literary establishment back in the 1940s. Trouble was, he was just a fictitious character invented as a prank by some anti-Modernists. Details here.
