Phantom Rosebuds is a brand new autobiography of Clifford Irving, a controversial writer, lover, prisoner and film character. His 'signature' book chronicles a subjective trawl through a notorious history -- from his early years as a creative writing teacher, through the Howard Hughes scandal, right up to the moment of the author's appearance in his own narrative. A considerable section of the story is dedicated to Clifford Irving's role in F for Fake, the 1972 film by Orson Welles about illusion, techniques of conviction and the speculative value of art.
