A brilliant introduction to the bizarre world of eBay, this hilarious collection of letters is a delightfully modern take on classic letter-writing prank books such as The Time-Waster Letters and Letters From a Nut.

Art Farkas explores the millions of strange and wonderful items up for auction on eBay, and catches sellers out with his outlandish and peculiar letters regarding their items.
