Rigoberta Menchu is a Guatemalan Marxist-feminist who wrote the phony autobiography I, Rigoberta Menchu, An Indian Woman in Guatemala. She received much acclaim with her book and was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1992. Her book contained many inventions and untruths. It was discovered that the younger brother who was supposed to have died of malnutrition was actually alive when one New York Times investigator looked into her claim.
