Ghost Writer

Charles Earle Funk’s book “A Hog on Ice & Other Curious Expressions” explains that “Ghosts, as everyone knows, are invisible, unseen. So it is with the ghost writer; he is the unseen and anonymous person who writes for hire…Until a decade or so ago such persons, were just called ghosts—somebody thought it a bit more dignified to add ‘writer’.” Much (perhaps even most?) of the works of public officials are written by anonymous and talented ghost writers.
