***Shortlisted for the 2020 Edgar Allen Poe Awards***
We’re putting Fake Like Me on this list because it’s been shortlisted for an Edgar, but it’s not a mystery in the traditional sense. Yes, there’s a plot twist, but you have to wait a long time for it, and there’s no particular buildup to it. What it is is a vivid description of being a young artist, trying to make it in the world.
