Something About Me and My Book:

By day, he’s a mild-mannered school teacher. But when the sun goes down, Paul Meadors morphs into Art Farkas, the most demented and shameless correspondent any eBayer ever had. With breezy self-confidence he explains his bizarre plans for sellers’ products and asks for their help in his schemes. Would his great-grandmother be able to haul the bongos down to the corner to play to passersby for spare change? Will the bird feeder hold enough alcohol to get birds drunk? Is the animal trap suitable for catching an 82-year-old man? Even more hilarious than Farkas’s wacky questions are the sellers’ gallant efforts to decipher them and cling to that age-old salesman’s credo—the customer is always right!

Writing Letters to eBay

O.k., I'll admit it. I didn't set out to write a book. It just kind of, well, fell into my laptop, so to speak. During the summer of 2005, in my quest for

some good natured laughs in the name of tomfoolery I sent off some

inane questions to my brother-in-law about his dust-collecting items he

was auctioning off on eBay. He got a big kick out of reading them and

e-mailed me back to say I should find other eBay auctions and do the

same, to see what…
