Book Description: 
Paul Chowder, the poet protagonist of Nicholson BakerG++-----++++s widely acclaimed novel The Anthologist, is turning fifty-five and missing his ex-girlfriend, Roz, rather desperately.

As he approaches the dreaded birthday, Paul is uninspired by his usual artistic outlet (although heG++-----++++s pleased that his poetry anthology, Only Rhyme, is selling G++-----+-+----+steadilyG++-----+-++---+). Putting aside poetry in favor of music, and drawing on his classical bassoon training, Paul turns instead to his new acoustic guitar with one goal in mind: to learn songwriting. As he struggles to come to terms with the horror of AmericaG++-----++++s drone wars and RozG++-----++++s recent relationship with a local NPR radio host, Paul fills his days with Quaker meetings, Planet Fitness workouts, and some experiments with tobacco. Written in BakerG++-----++++s beautifully unconventional prose, and scored with musical influences from Debussy to Tracy Chapman to Paul himself, Traveling Sprinkler is an enchanting, hilariousG++-----++----+and very necessaryG++-----++----+novel by one of the most beloved and influential writers today.
