Good evening. I have always been intrigued by people who perpetrate hoaxes. The human mind boggles me. Of the many hoaxes I have researched the one committed by Vicki Johnson is absolutely rife with pathology. She claimed to be the adoptive mother of a young boy, Anthony Godby Johnson, horribly abused and dying of AIDS. The boy wrote a memoir A Rock and a Hard Place: One Boy's Triumphant Story. (The publisher was also duped.) Armistead Maupin, an author and radio show host was completely taken in by the boy and his story. They had a long distance telephone relationship for years. Mr. Maupin wrote a book titled The Night Listener and a movie (by the same name) was made based on the book. There was no child. Fascinating. If you have any hoaxes in which you were captivated please share. Peace.
