98. Alter Ego

98. Alter Ego

By Helen Zaltzman

The Allusionist

Saturday, 27 April

Today: three pieces about alter egos, when your name - the words by which the world knows you - is replaced by another for particular purposes, such as competing in roller derby, writing popular but disreputable detective novels, or being legally anonymous, unidentified, or fake.

There is one strong swear in this episode.
