Peter Selgin The Inventors: A Memoir says
Peter Selgin’s father, the inventor of the first dollar bill changing machine and of the “proximity detector” and his teacher, an advocate for human rights for indigenous people and of refugees, both turned out to have invented stories about their respective backgrounds and past lives. He speaks about his search for the truth about them (and of the ways in which these relationships would shape the man he sould become) in his book, The Inventors: a Memoir. Peter Selgin’s books include Drowning Lessons, winner of a Flannery O’Connor Award for Fiction and Confessions of a Left-Handed Man.

"Only a writer as gifted and insightful as Peter Selgin could have produced this deeply compelling story of two brilliant but extraordinarily deceitful men and the complicated relationships he shared with them. A superb work of memory that unfolds like a great suspense novel."—Sigrid Nunez
