Description

In The Secret Life: Three True Stories, Andrew O’Hagan issues three bulletins from the porous border between cyberspace and the ‘real world’.

‘Ghosting’ introduces us to the Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, whose autobiography the author agrees to ghostwrite, with unforgettable consequences.

‘The Invention of Ronald Pinn’ finds O’Hagan using the identity of a deceased young man to construct an entirely new one online, leading him on a journey into the deep web’s darkest realms.

‘The Satoshi Affair’ chronicles the strange case of Craig Wright, the Australian web developer who may or may not be the mysterious inventor of Bitcoin, and who may or may not be willing, or even able, to reveal the truth.
