About this title:

Synopsis: A collection of essays which range from "The history of the comma" to an amusing account of reading aloud, from a lament on the disappearance of conventional library classification to an appreciation of cinema-going. Nicholson Baker has also written "The Mezzanine", "The Fermata" and "U and I"

Review: Novelist and essayist Nicholson Baker has had a small but well-deserved cult following since his first book, The Mezzanine, and the publication of the literary sex-bomb Vox saw his popularity mushroom. Baker's great gift is a precision of observational detail that has a peculiarly incisive effect on a reader's consciousness. Here is over a decade's worth of his essays and articles, including the much-praised card catalogue article first published in the New Yorker. The Size of Thoughts, through its varied forays into the realms of the overlooked, the underfunded, and the wrongfully scrapped, is a funny and thought-provoking book by one of the most distinctive stylists and thinkers of our time.
