She has nightmares approximately tooth, that could clarify her occupation selection. she's going to college in England, the place she is mocked for her accessory and her friendship with an unpopular woman, and he or she has made it throughout the yr with out crying.

Nicholson Baker follows Nory as she interacts along with her mom and dad and friends, thinks approximately God and death-watch beetles, and goals of cows with pointed enamel. during this precocious baby he offers us a heroine as canny and as whimsical as Lewis Carroll's Alice and inspires youth in all its luminous weirdness.
