Yet More Invented Memoirs?

The L.A. Weekly has run a story called "Navahoax" in which it asks the question "Did a struggling white writer of gay erotica become one of multicultural literature’s most celebrated memoirists — by passing himself off as Native American?" Matthew Fleischer's extensive article reviews the work of a writer published as Nasdijj and who has had three memoirs published which described his life as a Navajo. Now this story asks whether "Nasdijj" may actually be a Michigan writer named Timothy Patrick Barrus. You can find the entire "Navahoax" article here You can find a related story by triangle.com columnist J. Peder Zane here.
