Praise for Clifford Irving’s books:
In 1960, Robert Graves wrote: “The Losers is the best short novel I have read in twenty years.” (Coming soon)
In 1970, Pablo Picasso wrote: “[Fake!] is a delightfully vicious book, a joy to read and contemplate.”
In 1982, Ernest Lehman wrote: “With Tom Mix and Pancho Villa, Clifford Irving takes his place among the giants of contemporary literature, dazzling us all with his robust, rousing, riproaring work of art.”
In 1984, Thomas Keneally wrote: “[In The Angel of Zin, Clifford] Irving has given the concept of murder an enlarged dimension …a totally engrossing thriller.”
In 1991, William Safire, in The New York Times, called Clifford Irving’s Trial “the novel of the year.”
In 1993, Donald Porter, in Mystery News, says of Final Argument: “Only a handful of American authors have ever been able to transform murder and infidelity into poetry, and Irving is one of those writers…”
Clifford Irving is the author of 20 published books, among them New York Times best-sellers Fake!, Trial, and Final Argument. Richard Gere starred as Clifford in the movie version of Hoax, the story of Clifford’s most famous book, the Autobiography of Howard Hughes, which forced the billionaire out of seclusion, allegedly caused the downfall of Richard Nixon, and earned the writer 16 months in three federal prisons. (Available on Kindle: JAILING: the Prison Memoirs of 00040 a/k/a Clifford Irving)
The L.A. Times called Clifford Irving “a master,” and Thomas Keneally (Schindler’s List) lauded Irving’s The Angel of Zin as “absolutely compelling, a totally engrossing thriller.”
This March 2012, as a birthday present, his computer-savvy son, Josh, has created a unique event – 12 of Clifford’s works, published and unpublished, available as eBooks — Kindle & Nook books; 12 for 2012. Please feel free to go back and leave a positive review on Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
Or the brilliant Tom Mix and Pancho Villa; Treat yourself today!
They include Clifford’s thrilling prison journal, Jailing, excerpted in Playboy but withheld in full until now; the superb true-crime courtroom drama, Daddy’s Girl; the unforgettable novel, Diablo Valley; and the “extraordinarily entertaining and thoughtful” novel, The Spring.
I Remember Amnesia, a new coming of age novel, set in East Hampton, that will appeal to young adults; Fake!, the sophisticated true tale of the most prolific art forger of the 20th century (think forged Picasso, Modigliani, and Matisse in top museums). It was also the inspiration for filmmaker Orson Welles’ last major movie, “F For Fake,” now a cult classic.; best-sellers Trial and Final Argument, and, of course, the notorious Autobiography of Howard Hughes, never published in the USA except by a private printing rare enough to sell in hardback for $350.
