Since Irving confessed to the fake biography of Hughes and was sentenced to prison for almost 2 years for fraud, then I think Irving should take advantage of this 'negative' part of his life.
"THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF HOWARD HUGHES" now says nothing 41 years later and resonates in no way with Irving's decision to commit fraud.
I think it should be retitled to take 'advantage' of this aspect of his crime, if one can think of it in that sense.
Perhaps even repackaging "Jailing" with the "Autobiography" [if those two are related] - ALONG WITH ANY NEWLY WRITTEN THOUGHTS ABOUT THE CRIME - would be an interesting marketing ploy.
