Hoaxed!: Fake News, Beautiful Lies and Ern Malley.

Join Miles Franklin longlisted novelist Stephen Orr and critic Simon Caterson, author of Hoax Nation, to talk literary hoaxes and all things Ern.

The Ern Malley Affair is part of a legacy of literary hoaxes. When the identity of an author is revealed as fake, how do we judge the work left behind? How much does the author matter? And what does a hoax like the Ern Malley Affair reveal about creativity and authenticity, faith and belief, and Australian literary culture?

In his blackly funny new novel, Sincerely, Ethel Malley, Stephen Orr brings Ern and Ethel to vivid life.
