Answer: Serial craigslist poster and parodist Gary Fingercastle.

Picture this: Author and agitator Gary Fingercastle posts hundreds of mock advertisements on the popular website craigslist.org and receives thousands of real-life responses. And because truth is stranger than fiction, he learns that:People will do anything for love (like jumping into a lion pen and dressing up like a Christmas tree).You can give anything away (like haunted furniture, torture racks, and mummies).You can purchase anything on the Internet (like bear cubs and tattoos for children).People will do anything for money (like driving into walls at high speeds and starving themselves for five weeks straight).This book is the hilarious and oftentimes horrifying collection that really makes you wonder—are we all insane?
