The Mezzanine
STAFF PICK | May

Nicholson Baker

“ A one-story escalator ride sets the stage for Baker's stunningly detailed first novel. In The Mezzanine, he defamiliarizes the familiar of everyday life and locates the sublime in the ordinary. You'll never look at plastic straws or hand dryers the same way again. ”
