There is a clear stand-out in my mind for the most interesting article I’ve ever read in the New Yorker.

Published in August of 2008, “The Chameleon” follows much of the life of Frédéric Bourdin, a man who has lived several.

To say any more would give too much away so I will only admit that it is an incredibly fascinating and suspenseful study of crime, coincidences, and perhaps, sheer luck. It is a highly entertaining read and I could not recommend it more.

Read it at the New Yorker.
