The program has been funded by Rex Schoeninger, the world’s richest novelist, who is dying. Buzzards are circling, angling for the remains of Rex’s fortune, and Frankie quickly realizes that he has been presented with the opportunity of a lifetime. Complicating matters is the fact that Rex is haunted by a 25-year feud with the shadowy Mohle. What rankles Rex is that, while he has written 50 best sellers and never gotten an ounce of literary respect, Mohle wrote one slender novel, disappeared into the woods, and become an icon. Determined to come to terms with his past, Rex has arranged to bring his rival to Texas, only to find himself facing off against an imposter.
Famous Writers I Have Known is not just an unforgettable literary romp but also a surprisingly tender take on two men - one a scam artist frantic to be believed, the other an old lion desperate to be remembered.

Enervating Account of Eccentric Adventures
An enervating account of the eccentric adventures of certain vainglorious illuminati, meant mainly for the amusement of MFAs and similar "clever" cognoscenti.

This is a "B" movie in novel form
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I cannot recommend this book given how boring the actual novel ended up being. Great idea but uninspired and plodding story.
What do you think your next listen will be?
Maybe a mystery.
Did Kevin T. Collins do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
He didn't do a poor job narrating but his voice did not seem well suited to the character. Unless the character was supposed to read like a nebbish.
Do you think Famous Writers I Have Known needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
No. See review above.
Any additional comments?
Audible recommended this book and by doing so has caused me to lose all faith in the accuracy of its recommendations.
