    Review quote
    [...] Fakers is packed with plenty of shaggy-dog stories about elaborate hoaxes-in 1999, a man named Joey Skaggs created a company called Final Curtain that promised to build cemeteries complete with restaurants and gift shops. Lesser writers could be tempted to coast on the sheer novelty of these stories. But Maliszewski has a curious mind and a sharp pen, so his book becomes a lot more. Of course, that's assuming we can trust him. -- Jonathan Messinger
