The Fermata

[cover]

by Nicholson Baker


isbn: 0679759336
subject: Fiction and Literature
finished: Spring 1997


In this book, Baker explores what might happen if a man were able to suspend time for the entire world, except himself. It's pornographic and sometimes disturbing, but also hilarious. The Fermata contains a lot of the little observations about life that made The Mezzanine fun to read, and also some ethical questions: does what you don't know really not hurt you?
