the enigmatic author

Here is the ABOUT THE AUTHOR page for the New York Times Bestseller Your Religion Is False.

The website lists the author's purported name as Joel Grus.

Otherwise, he is that cliche: a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma. Perhaps he's a would-be cult-leader, a narcissistic attention whore salivating at the imminent adulation of groupies of, er, thoughtful people. Hence his self-conscious restraint.

It's more likely the author is in fact a group of people, a collaborative effort. Otherwise the next-best explanation is a lone individual impossibly fathered, illegitimate and anachronistic, by Mark Twain and Woody Allen. Thankfully in his work, Grus more resembles the father.
