Robert Lanham (born 1971 in Richmond, Virginia) is the author of the satiric books The Hipster Handbook, Food Court Druids, Cherohonkees, and Other Creatures Unique to the Republic, and The Sinner's Guide to the Evangelical Right. He coined the term idiosyncrology, the study of idiosyncratic people, and his books often parody the eccentric people one finds in the United States. Neal Pollack calls Lanham "the Margaret Mead of the North American weirdo." In an article published in the fall of 2009, New York[1] referred to Lanham as one of "Five Voices That Matter in the Music Blogosphere."

Lanham is also the editor of FREEwilliamsburg, a website covering the arts and culture of the artist mecca Williamsburg, Brooklyn. His writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Independent,[2] The Washington Post, Time Out, Huffington Post,[3] Maxim, Salon,[4] Nylon, Radar,[5][6] McSweeney's,[7] Gawker and Playboy, as well as in the collections The Subway Chronicles, Cassette From My Ex, Rock & Roll Cage Match, and Bookmark Now.
