Description

Bunk and the Rise of Hoaxes, Humbug, Plagiarists, Phones, Post-Facts, and Fake News

Building on his award-winning nonfiction book Bunk, Kevin Young outlines the history of the hoax and the hoaxing of history that led us to this particular moment of fake news and truthiness. Young traces an American inheritance of fakery from PT Barnum to present-day impostors like Rachel Dolezal who reaffirm the hoax as rife with race and unreason, threatening our art, politics, and daily lives.
