Wit and sass . . .

Missing Persons: A Writer's Guide to Finding the Lost, the Abducted and the Escaped - Fay Faron

Do you like your writer's reference books to be written by someone with wit and sass? Bonus points for having Oprah's imprimatur? Then Fay Faron is your woman. 


A fun book about a subject I never knew I needed to know about. Fun BECAUSE of the writing style.
