TOGETHER FOR THE FIRST TIME, BOTH OF NICHOLSON BAKERa€™S BRILLIANT NOVELS FEATURING BELOVED HERO AND POET PAUL CHOWDER A New York Times notable book and a national bestseller, Nicholson Bakera€™s The Anthologist introduces his quirkiest and most unforgettable protagonist yet, the a€œerudite, unpretentious, and often hilariousa€ (The New Yorker) Paul Chowder. Chowder really needs to write an introduction to his new anthology of verse, Only Rhymea€”ita€™s the first work his editor has sent him in monthsa€”but hea€™s having a hard time getting started. Not only is his career floundering, but his girlfriend, Roz, just moved out. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Chowder cana€™t keep his mind from drifting to the sufferings of the great poets, from Tennyson and Yeats to Roethke, Merwin, to every poet whoa€™s been published in The New Yorker. As he ponders the strange power and musicality of language, and adjusts to his newly single life, Chowdera€™s introduction slowly but surely begins to take shape. A wholly entertaining and beguiling love story, and the first novel in the chronicles of Paul Chowdera€”which is followed by Traveling Sprinkler in this same volumea€”The Anthologist is a€œa loving and superbly witty homage to poetryand to lifea€ (The Boston Globe).Atthe beginning of hisbook he thanks Mayer and some of his fellow students a€œfor showing how well all this stuffcan work.a€ Pattison is not a humbleman. ... Youa#39;re on your way down, a€œdiving, plunging, heading for the soft pink and blue glow.
