Fraud by David Rakoff

David Rakoffs' 'Fraud' might not be my favourite book of all time, but it was definitely the last one I read that I really enjoyed. And I find its title inspirational for this project.

David's style of essayistic non-fiction is sometimes darkly comic and he uses sophisticated vocabulary (at least to me as a non-native speaker). Like so many others I discovered him through his contributions to This American Life. Unfortunately he is not writing anymore as he died of cancer, aged 47 last year. Here is an NPR interview with him.
