Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Michael Gerber (born June 14, 1969) is the author of the Barry Trotter series, million-selling parodies of the Harry Potter books. Before becoming a novelist, Gerber contributed humor to The New Yorker, Saturday Night Live, and many other venues. In addition to the Barry Trotter parodies, Gerber is also responsible for The Chronicles of Blarnia: The Lying Bitch in the Wardrobe and A Christmas Peril, spoofs of C.S. Lewis and Charles Dickens respectively. He has written two non-parodic novels, Freshman and Sophomore, half of a four-book series which follows a student's progress through the mythical, Ivy/Oxbridge-inflected Stutts University. In writing these satirical romps, Gerber draws upon his experiences as a student at Yale University, specifically his activities on The Yale Record college humor magazine. Gerber currently runs The Record's alumni organization.
