  • Résumé

The Size of Thoughts, a collection of essays that have appeared in the New Yorker and other publications, includes one neverbeforepublished piece on the world of electronics. The essays celebrate the joyand exquisite detailsof everything from library card catalogs and reading aloud to the significance of wine stains on a tablecloth.

Baker turns any subject, from feeding a child to phone sex, into literature with a style that is sparklingly original, frequently beautiful, and always thoughtprovoking. The Size of Thoughts, through its varied forays into the realms of the overlooked, the underfunded, and the wrongfully scrapped, is a funny book by one of the most distinctive stylists and thinkers of out time.
