Gary Fingercastle, a freelance writer and editor, has been writing about and following online culture for half a decade. An avid Internet junkie, he has devoted countless hours to studying the evolution of online trends. Utilizing skills he acquired working as a playwright, a traveling musician, an exterminator, an antique book salesman, and a method actor, Mr. Fingercastle assumed many roles during the production of this book, posing as neglectful parents, landlords, ranchers, sex-crazed fetishists, nut jobs, druggies, art dealers, and ministers. He lives in New York, NY.
What do haunted furniture, bear cubs, and a skydiving baby have in common?
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?
