Hoaxes and Frauds and Swindles, Oh, My

Some really entertaining law-related articles in the current issue (titled "Swindle and Fraud") of Lapham's Quarterly (Spring, 2015). Check out Lewis H. Lapham's "Paper Moons," David Samuels' "A Fish Tale," (about Herman Melville's literary hoax), a map of "Land Grabs" (questionable real estate), "Life Imitates Life," (a little something from Oscar Wilde), a column on Harry Houdini and more. Link to the whole fascinating issue here.
