9780099562344: Selling Hitler: Story of the Hitler Diaries

It's spring 1983. It seemed that one of the most startling discoveries of the century had been made, and that one of the world's most sought after documents had finally come to light - the private diaries of Adolf Hitler. What followed was a fiasco of fakery, greed, the duping of experts, and the exchange of extraordinary sums of money for world-wide publishing rights. But that was just the beginning of the story.

About the Author:

Robert Harris is the author of Fatherland, Enigma, Archangel, Pompeii, Imperium and The Ghost, all of which were international bestsellers. His latest novel, Lustrum, has just been published. His work has been translated into thirty-seven languages. After graduating with a degree in English from Cambridge University, he worked as a reporter for the BBC's Panorama and Newsnight programmes, before becoming political editor of the Observer and subsequently a columnist on the Sunday Times and the Daily Telegraph. The film of The Ghost - for which he co-wrote the screenplay - directed by Roman Polanski and starring Ewan McGregor and Pierce Brosnan is due to be released at the beginning of 2010. He is married to Gill Hornby and they live with their four children in a village near Hungerford.

Synopsis:

The author explores the Hitler diary fiasco and describes five weeks in the lives of several publications, including "The Sunday Times", "Newsweek" and "The Washington Post". This was also the climax of a remarkable fraud - the manufacture of many Nazi fakes, the manipulation of the German publishing conglomerate, the fooling of experts around the world and the fascination of the world's reading public.
