This book cover image released by Gallery Books shows "Diary of An Oxygen Thief," a 147-page fictionalized memoir first published in 2006 by a writer known as Anonymous. This year, the book reached the top 20 on both Amazon.com and iTunes, enough to interest literary agent Byrd Leavell and eventually a publisher that plans to release an e-edition this week and a paper version in mid-June 2016.
