True to form, Nicholson Baker delights with curious arcane tidbits about everything from the making of model airplane kits to the sad fate of card catalogues. Most of it is humorous and wonderful --(in one essay, he looks up the books used as accessories in catalogues like Pottery Barn and gives us synopses on these tomes chosen only for their covers)-- but the five-part "Lumber" truly lumbers along, and should've been kept to one better-edited essay. No doubt that's why it's saved to last. Still, a good read.
