The Anthologist

The Anthologist - Nicholson Baker What if Nabokov had farmed out the writing of Pale Fire to Alain de Botton, or maybe Sarah Vowell, or even better, Nicholson Baker? And what if he'd said, "Oh, and don't worry about being all eggheady like me or anything. Have some fun with it."?

Who knows. Fortunately, it doesn't matter, because this book got written anyway. Nicholson Baker, I love you.

P.S. I love Pale Fire, too, but it's eggheady.
