July 31 (Bloomberg) -- U.S. author Jonah Lehrer resigned as a staff reporter at New Yorker magazine after saying he faked quotes from singer Bob Dylan in his latest nonfiction book, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing a statement from Lehrer.

Lehrer said he lied to journalist Michael Moynihan after being questioned on the authenticity of the quotes three weeks ago, according to the newspaper.

His book “Imagine: How Creativity Works” is being pulled from retailers Barnes & Noble Inc. and Amazon.com Inc. after Dylan’s management said it had no record of any contact with Lehrer, the Journal reported.
