The Woman Who Wasn’t There

Robin Gaby Fisher is the New York Times bestselling author of three critically acclaimed books.  Her latest, The Woman Who Wasn't There (Simon and Schuster, 2012), also literally astounds readers. One such reader --TV journalist Meredith Vieira -- declared:  “I finished reading this book weeks ago, but I can't put it down.  It continues to haunt me, and it will you as well. A story impossible to believe...except it's all true."

Gaby Fisher’s describes The Woman Who Wasn’t There as “the story of one of the most audacious and bewildering quests for acclaim in recent memory—one that poses fascinating questions about the essence of morality, and the human need for connection at any cost.”

Fisher, director of the Journalism and Media Studies Program at Rutgers-Newark, is also the co-author of Fields of Grace: Faith, Friendship and the Day I Nearly Lost Everything, with Hannah Luce.  Her earlier books include After the Fire: A True Story of Friendship and Survival (Little Brown), and The Boys of the Dark: A Story of Betrayal and Redemption in the Deep South (St. Martin's Press). She is currently co-authoring a memoir by Yamma Brown, the daughter of music legend James Brown.
