2 editions published in 2008 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Synopsis : En 1971, Clifford Irving devint l'homme le plus célèbre de son temps pour avoir accompli un exploit extraordinaire. Alors que tout le monde en rêvait sans jamais y parvenir, ce modeste auteur avait obtenu les confidences du multimilliardaire Howard Hughes, qui vivait reclus après une vie d'excentricités. Tout à coup, le géant du cinéma et de l'aviation, ce séducteur désormais enfermé chez lui sans aucun contact avec l'extérieur, avait livré les secrets de sa vie. Le document était à la mesure de la légende de Hughes et les éditeurs se déchaînèrent pour s'offrir le manuscrit. Irving récolta richesse et renommée. Le seul problème, c'est qu'il n'avait même jamais rencontré Hughes et qu'il avait tout inventé... Embarqué dans un mensonge qui devint chaque jour plus complexe, Irving osa tout devant une industrie, des médias et un public tellement avides d'une histoire rocambolesque qu'ils avalèrent toute l'affaire. Aussi incroyable qu'authentique, voici la saga de cet homme qui trompa le monde entier et provoqua des remous jusqu'au sommet de l'Etat avec l'un des plus grands faux de l'Histoire
