Tess asked:

There was an old forgery mentioned where two authors forged each other's signature in each other's book. Does anyone remember who those authors were? I didn't just imagine it right?

iosephvs bibliothecarivs The other two mentioned were writer Edward Abbey and artist Robert Crumb.
Deborah Cleaves No you didn't imagine it. But there were actually two pairs of authors mentioned who did so. Wolfe and Hemingway whose forgery had been discovered, and two other authors present at the same book signing who did the same when one was misidentified as the other by someone seeking an autograph. That forged book has still not been identified.
Bob Hostetler Yes, Thomas Wolfe and Ernest Hemingway.
