After reading the two articles in The New York Times, one laudatory article before Margaret B. Jones was outed as a fraud and one after, I am asking myself: why write a memoir that's actually a lie? Haven't we already learned our lesson from Oprah and Fry? Didn't Margaret B. Jones, who is actually Margaret Seltzer, realize that if her story were compelling enough, she'd get readers regardless of genre? Yeeesh.
Memoir that is a lie--doesn't make it a fiction? I am appalled that she even had these "fake" siblings in the book.ReplyDelete
