About this title


The story of one man's lunch hour, tackling the important issues of life, such as "Why does one shoe-lace wear out before the other?" and "Who invented the spout on the paper milk carton?". The author has written stories for "The Atlantic" and "The New Yorker". This is his first novel.

Product Description:

Crams an encyclopedia's worth of keenly observed minutia into one of fiction's longest hours ever; turns an ordinary ride up an office escalator into a meditation on our relations with familiar objects -- shoelaces, straws, and more. Baker's debut novel, and a favorite amongst many of us here.
