Clifford Irving’s hoax

Clifford Michael Irving was an only child born to Jay and Dorothy Irving of New York on November 5, 1930. Little is known about his formative years, but later he became an investigative writer and reporter, best known for having successfully fobbed off his fake autobiography of Howard Hughes on publishers McGraw Hill, and almost getting away with it.
