Jonah Lehrer: I'm Writing About My Plagiarism Scandal

Look out, world: Jonah Lehrer is writing again.

The author and former New Yorker writer suffered a massive level of public humiliation when he was found to have plagiarized and fabricated quotes at nearly every step in his career. Now, in an email to Los Angeles magazine, Lehrer revealed that he is going to be weighing in with his own take on the scandal.

"I’m extremely tempted to correct many of the false accusations that have been made about my work in recent weeks," he wrote. "I’m writing something about the mistake and affair myself, if only so I can learn from the failing, and I’d prefer not to talk until my writing is done."

Lehrer gave no indication about what kind of work he will produce, or when he will release it.
