Nicholson Baker: The next writer of James Bond?

N-Baker-webNicholson Baker is a novelist, humorist, and social critic. His most recent release is The Paul Chowder Chronicles, which brings together two novels about Paul Chowder: The Anthologist and Traveling Sprinkler. Baker received a National Book Critics Circle Award in 2001 for his  Double Fold: Libraries and the Assault on Paper, a nonfiction look at the decline of paper-based materials being archived by libraries.

We talked about whether┬áthere will be more Paul Chowder books (yes), whether Baker worries about how people confuse him for his character (no), and what genre he’d really like to write (hint: it’s in the post’s title).

Nicholson Baker will be appearing at the Thurber House Evenings with Authors on October 21. Get your tickets now.
