Most prank letter books are written by a fictitious person. This greatly reduces the humor and purpose of the prank. So far I've only come across two prank letter books written without the cowardly use of a pseudonym. Idiot Letters and Hire Me Dumbass (by Joe Mozian) are both written by real people. Their authors are gifted in the odd art of prank letter writing and accept full responsibility for their actions. While Idiot Letters does get a bit far-fetched on occasion, it is funny. Hire Me Dumbass however is honest from cover to cover, and hysterical to boot. If you are a first timer to prank letter books, both Idiot letters and Hire Me Dumbass are the best places to start.
