Magic from Nicholson Baker

Listen to Nicholson Baker from his magical book about excavating a nation’s dark secrets, Baseless: My Search for Secrets in the Ruins of the Freedom of Information Act … listen (p. 225): “What do I really want from a book? I want truth in every paragraph. I want surprises. I want a sense that everything is not hopeless. That we can do better. I want a sense that life is a complicated mixture of emotions and inconsistencies. Life is a sandwich. I want to include, or simulate, the pleasure of eating a sandwich.”
