Nobody Knows (The Thing That Really Matters About) Anything! [NOOK Book]

Overview

"While some early reviews by Nobodies indicate that this book is a work of meta-fiction, I prefer to think of it as a work of meta-non-fiction--one which I'm sure has Truman Capote turning over in his grave. He had his own opinion about how the true story of multiple murders ought to be told." Nobody!

"Who would've thought to reinvent non-fiction and make it funny in the process?" Nobody!

"'Back to the Future' of Literary Non-Fiction." Nobody at DeLorean Motor Cars

"It's as if the 'Extracts' ate 'Moby Dick!'" Nobody at Real Vanilla Extracts

"Nobody! has arrived just in time to save the publishing industry singlehandedly!" Nobody at "Publisher's Weakly" Magazine

"Nobody! writes for the cheap seats!" Nobody at Cheapseats.com

“Nobody! takes ‘abstract’ writing to a whole new level. Plus, he had the good sense to number things!” Nobody selling Jackson Pollock's Numbered Paintings (“They make people look at a picture for what it is--pure painting!”)

"Nobody!'s genius was to realize that science was comedy!" Nobody at the University of Clown Science ("The Science of Clowns! The Clowns of Science!")

    Nobody knows how good this book will be.

    ...because I haven't finished it yet. But it is a great relief for me. Like meeting a long lost brother. Thanks, Nobody!
