    In his latest book, Richard Flanagan flexes his literary prowess to create an ambitious work that blends fiction and non-fiction, reality and fantasy. When failing author Kif Kehlmann is offered the job of ghostwriting the memoirs of notorious con man Siegfried Heidl, he accepts with some misgivings. What follows is a strange and mordantly funny tale that unsettles and entertains the reader in equal parts. Flanagan raises questions of truth and power as he unpacks the evolving and increasingly sinister relationship between writer and subject. Inspired by events in Flanagan’s own life, First Person is a more slippery and challenging read than the author’s 2014 Man Booker Prize winner, The Narrow Road to the Deep North, but is no less compelling for it.
