NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD WINNER
"Graceful and resonant"
– New York Times
"Charming, uplifting tales"
– Library Journal
"A testament to the value of investigative journalism…full of shocking and revelatory moments.”
“Thoroughly absorbing...Sabar does an exemplary job of not only digging into every facet, and then some, of the story of Fritz and the long con he pulled on King and Harvard, but in digesting it all and synthesizing it into a comprehensible and exciting narrative. It’s a wild and educational ride. Along the way, readers learn about early Christian history, the vagaries of Coptic script and grammar, the place of papyrus in written communication, methods of dating antiquities, the psychology of the con artist and a great deal more...Sabar turns a complex, esoteric story into a page turner, and reaffirms the adage that truth is stranger than fiction”
—THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR
"I devoured Sabar's book practically in one sitting."
