About the Author

Melissa Katsoulis is a journalist and writer. She has written for The Times, where she also worked on the books desk, the Sunday Telegraph, the Financial Times, The Tablet and the Ham and High. She lives in London.


Hugely enjoyable: amusing, literate, learned and perceptive ... Katsoulis is a wonderfully wise and witty cicerone through the luxuriant jungles of literary fraudulence. Telling Tales is a delight from start to finish, right down to the cheeky cover. * Sunday Times *
This lively entertaining volume gallops through the centuries, taking in misery memoirs, pretend nuns and the Priory of Sion conspiracy. It leaves you reeling at some people's gullibility. * Daily Telegraph *
Katsoulis revels in highlighting the most ridiculous details of the hoaxes and is especially good at showing how they suddenly took on a life of their own and escaped their creator's clutches. * Sunday Telegraph *
Highly entertaining. * Good Book Guide *
Irresistible ... lots to enjoy. * Wood & Vale *
Riveting. * Daily Mail *
A joy to read. * The Independent on Sunday *
A brisk, breezy and hugely entertaining survey of literary hoaxes over the past couple of centuries. -- James Lovegrove * Financial Times *
