This month's book

This month's book selection is How to Disappear Completely and Never Be Found by Sara Nickerson. Ms. Nickerson says that she's always fantasized about disappearing, but she was nudged towards writing a screenplay (which later became a book) on the subject when she "happened upon the book, How To Disappear Completely and Never Be Found by Doug Richmond. I hadn't been looking for it, would never have imagined that it even existed...I'd just been killing time in a bookstore, wandering up and down aisles. It was a thin white book with a picture of one of those plastic noses and dark-rimmed glasses on the cover - a stand-up comedian's prop, a drugstore disguise. But this book was no joke. It was a genuine how-to manual for people who truly wanted or needed to escape. I couldn't believe I'd found it." (http://www.indiebound.org/author-interviews/nickersonsara)
