I was in the rocking chair giving our six-month-old Bug her late afternoon bottle.
I bought this novella because I had read Baker's first one, "The Mezzanine", which I liked. Wikipedia says that earlier book "created the genre of digressive, annotational metafiction for which Baker is best known". Basically he concentrates on the minute details of everyday life in a stream-of-consciousness style. I expect this book to be a fun, interesting read.
