  1. Erstwhile Assange Ghostwriter Describes Life at Wikileaks Manor

    Andrew O’Hagan’s essay on ghostwriting for Julian Assange offers some eye-opening commentary on the Wikileaks founder. Describing several months spent in an English country mansion, working on an autobiography that would never come to fruition, O’Hagan suggests the project dissolved because Assange was afraid of self-examination. While Assange is often cast as a larger-than-life figure, O’Hagan paints a very different picture of a “thin-skinned, conspiratorial, untruthful, narcissistic” man.
