The Hag
It is with some horror. It is with disbelief that I have the unwelcome duty to reveal that Richard Flanagan is a plagiarist. And here is incontrovertible proof. This is the cover of acclaimed journalist, lauded columnist Piers Akerman’s brilliant new novel, Wanking. As readers can see it is exact in every detail to the design of Flanagan’s new novel, Wanting. Take heart Piers:  Imitation as they say is the sincerest form of flattery. If only he could write as well as you.
