Nicholson Baker (Elias Baker)

Novelist and writer Nicholson Baker’s new book, Traveling Sprinkler, is about a fairly well regarded poet named Paul Chowder who is having a hard time writing a new book. So he picks up a guitar instead -- and composes a series of songs. And, it turns out, so did Nicholson Baker. He joins us in the studio to discuss his new book -- and the actual companion album he recorded.
