Mysterious book of the day

A lady came up wanting the book A Kindness to Birds by Preston Brooks.  I looked everywhere; in our catalog, in our consortium catalog, even on Amazon...nothing.

Turns out it's actually a made-up book from the novel How I Became a Famous Novelist by Steve Hely!  I'm not sure how she heard of it, since she said she hadn't read the Hely book.  She walked away before I could ask!

[I have read it and it's hilarious but kind of ruins "literary" fiction for you for a while.]
