The Mysterious Author

I worked with Wes Bausmith at the Los Angeles Times on this extremely fun assignment.
The article was about a new novel, "O" and its anonymous author. In the past, publishing novels anonymously has resulted in strong book sales, as people read the book trying discover who the actual author is. We have some instinct to reveal hidden identities. These hunts become so intense that handwriting experts and prose analysts must get involved, as was the case with "Primary Colors."
