Naturally, this weighty tome will be a roaring success, topping the best seller (fiction) charts for weeks, if not months, so who will the royalties go to if the illustrious author is anonymous?
There are plenty of other things to criticize Jimmy about, but this one is rather weak.
There's a long history of books -- even popular ones -- being published anonymously or under pen names.
You could argue that it would be difficult for the publisher to send the royalties without a name. But I suppose that if it came down to it, and if the book actually sold enough copies to justify cutting a royalty cheque, he could just pick it up at the publisher's office.
