About the Author

Rachel DeLoache Williams was born and raised in Knoxville, Tennessee, and is a graduate of Kenyon College. In 2010, she moved to New York City and landed her dream job in the photo department of Vanity Fair, where she helped produce photo shoots, including those for the annual Hollywood and New Establishment issues, and worked with the magazine's leading photographers and iconic subjects. My Friend Anna is her first book.


"My Friend Anna is sensational."
- Bustle

"Unbelievable, unforgettable, and unputdownable: that's My Friend Anna."
- Book Riot

"My Friend Anna is the dishy story you've been craving ever since Anna Delvey first made headlines...a harrowing account of what it's like to be conned."
- Refinery29

"If you gobbled up every last detail of the Anna Sorokin 'Fake Socialite' trial this spring (and really, who didn't?), your addictive summer beach read has arrived."
-New York Post

"...a behind-the-scenes look at the [Anna Delvey] scam and how she got away with it...until she didn't. This one's nonfiction but feels too wild to be true."
-The Skimm

"It started out as an article in Vanity Fair and ended up a national obsession. Read for an inside look at NYC's elite - and a lesson in how people aren't always what they seem."
-The Skimm

"Beach reads should be light, fun, and serve a lot dish. That's why number one on my summer reading list is My Friend Anna: The True Story of a Fake Heiress by Rachel DeLoache Williams."
- Town & Country

"...the Sorokin scam [has] everything: glamour, greed, lust for power, great clothes (or at least expensive ones), rich people being ripped off, cameos by fellow millennial con artists like 'Pharma Bro' and the Fyre Festival organizers, and lots of satisfying clichΓ©s about the rotten core of the Big Apple."
- The New York Times

"...the gritty, glittery story of the woman who defined the Summer of Scam."
- Bustle

"...a thrilling tell-all that I have no doubt will be one of the most talked-about releases this summer!"

"My Friend Anna is a powerful account of Anna Delvey's life and crimes, but also a searching portrait of confidence artists and hustlers at large, and the kinds of communities that seem especially vulnerable to them."

"William's book is a detailed retelling of her experience, building far beyond the initial account she published in Vanity Fair in April 2018."

"I'm embarrassed to say how much I enjoyed it."
-Entertainment Weekly
