Cover of The Impostor’s Daughter: A True Memoir

In The Impostor’s Daughter: A True Memoir by Laurie Sandell, she”recounts the gradual realization that her charming, larger-than-life Argentine father, bragging of war metals, degrees from prestigious universities and acquaintances with famous people, had lied egregiously to his family about his past and accomplishments.” (via Publishers Weekly)

Composed as stunning graphic novel by Laurie Sandell, who is a journalist and published cartoonist, it is guaranteed to both delight you and mesmerize you.

Laurie Sandell grew up in Stockton, California, then lived in upstate New York, and has traveled the world: Jerusalem, Tokyo, Egypt, Jordan, backpacked all over Europe and then ended up going full circle back to Buenos Aires.

She now lives in Brooklyn and is a contributing editor at Glamour Magazine.

She will guest post on Literanista on Sunday!
