    The slippery online ecosystem is the perfect breeding ground for identities: true, false, and in between. The Internet shorthand IRL - "in real life" - now seems naïve. We no longer question the reality of online experiences but the reality of selfhood in the digital age. In The Secret Life, the essayist and novelist Andrew O'Hagan issues three bulletins from the porous border between cyberspace and IRL.

    Anne Quirk's life is built on stories - both the lies she was told by the man she loved and the fictions she told herself to survive. Nobody remembers Anne now, but this elderly woman was an artistic pioneer in her youth, a creator of groundbreaking documentary photographs. Her beloved grandson, Luke, now a captain with the Royal Western Fusiliers in the British army, has inherited her habit of transforming reality.

    In November 1960, Frank Sinatra gave Marilyn Monroe a dog. His name was Mafia Honey, or Maf for short. He had an instinct for celebrity. For politics. For psychoanalysis. For literature. For interior decoration. For Liver Treat with a side order of National Biscuits. With style, brilliance, and panache, Andrew O’Hagan has drawn an altogether original portrait of the woman behind the icon - and the dog behind the woman.

    Andrew O'Hagan issues three bulletins from the porous border between cyberspace and the 'real world.' 'Ghosting' introduces us to Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, whose autobiography the author ghostwrites with unforeseen consequences. In 'The Invention of Ronnie Pinn' the author uses the identity of a deceased man to construct an entirely new one in cyberspace. And 'The Satoshi Affair' details the strange case of Craig Wright, the web developer who may or may not be the inventor of Bitcoin.

    In a small Scottish parish, an English priest is stalked by the fear of scandal, class hatred, and lost ideals. Over the spring and summer of 2003, Father David becomes friends with two young people, Mark and Lisa; by the year's end, his life is the focus of public hysteria. As he looks back to his childhood, and to Oxford in the fever of student revolt, Father David begins to reconsider the central events of his life, and to see what may have happened to the political hopes of his generation.
