Staff Reviews

Have you read The Anthologist? If not then do so. You may then continue your adventure through Baker's fertile brain while marveling at his wit in this "sequel". Poetry, cigar smoking, songwriting and even romance are gathered beneath his analytical gaze as he probes the human condition (as evidenced by his own peculiarities) with humor and clarity.

— Karen Frank

The reigning king of avoidance behavior, Paul Chowder, is back. He is no longer failing to write an into to a book of rhyming poetry. Now he's writing songs. Nicholson Baker is the master of the hilarious internal monologue. — Stan Hynds


A new novel by bestselling author Nicholson Baker reintroduces feckless but hopeful hero Paul Chowder, whose struggle to get his life together is reflected in his steadfast desire to write a pop song, or a protest song, or both at once.
