Pan Am Imposter

Wed Aug 30, 2000 10:17 am

I was wondering if anyone out there knows the name of a book about a guy who was an imposter at Pan Am many years ago and posed as a pilot for years before eventually being caught. I think the name of it was "Catch Me if You Can." Does this ring a bell with anyone? I have been looking for it for a year now and can't seem to find it. And who was the author? Can you help me? Thanks!!

I used to have a signed copy of that book that I purchased at a Half Price Bookstore. It was called Catch Me If You Can : The Amazing True Story of the Most Extraordinary Liar in the History of Fun and Profit by Frank Abagnale, Jr.

It was one of those "I couldn't put it down books." You can purchase it at amazon.com for $12.60. The review states it is being re-released and also being made into a film by Dreamworks.
