This is the true story of Anna Delvey, the fake heiress whose dizzying deceit and elaborate con-artistry deceived the highest tiers of Manhattan society before her ruse was finally and dramatically exposed. Anna is now in prison awaiting trial. Anna's was a beautiful dream of New... York, like one of those nights that never seem to end. And then the bill arrives. After meeting through mutual friends, the 'Russian heiress' Anna Delvey and Rachel DeLoache Williams soon became inseparable. Theirs was an intoxicating world of endless excess: high dining with celebrities, luxury holidays, personal trainer sessions... and Anna footed every bill. But after Anna's debit card was declined in a Moroccan medina whilst on holiday in a five-star luxury resort, Rachel began to suspect that her increasingly mysterious friend was not all she seemed. This is the incredible story of how Anna Sorokin bewitched the high-rollers of the NYC social scene and convinced her best friend of an entirely concocted fantasy, the product of bad cheques and carefully edited online photos. Written by Rachel DeLoache Williams, the Vanity Fair photography editor who believed Anna's convincing yet brazen lies before helping the police to track her down (fittingly, deciphering Anna's location using Instagram), this is a memoir that will resonate with a generation forever preoccupied with presenting a confected, better life online.
