The Anthologist by Nicholson Baker

Nicholson's character, poet Paul Chowder, tells us everything he knows about poetry while he struggles to write the introduction to his anthology. Full of humor, wordplay, insight, beauty and, of course, melancholy, this little novel made me laugh out loud many times over. A highly recommended read for lovers of poetry and language.
