My old friend Nicholson Baker

My old friend Nicholson Baker has a new book out. NPR interviews him* about A Box of Matches, which mainly seems to be about a guy who sets fires in his fireplace. If you read the the summary on NPR's site, it seems like ole NB is getting just a little bit more obsessive/compulsive with each book that he writes. Will it be long before he makes his own paper and moveable-type printing press?

Listen, if you've never read any Baker, maybe start with The Mezzanine or Room Temperature, which have a freshness and a momentum that his recent writing lacks.
