Product description

Book Description

The Ern Malley Affair by Michael Heyward investigates the amazing true story of what is perhaps the most famous literary hoax in history; a successful Australian publisher receives a package of poems, written by the recently deceased modernist poet Ern Malley. Or are they?


When the young, successful and beautiful Australian literary editor, Max Harris, received out of the blue a package of poems by a recently deceased poet, Ern Malley, he was convinced that he had stumbled on the work of a young genius.
