Description
One autumn day, househusband Mike sits down in a rocking chair to feed his infant daughter, Bug, in this 1990 novel by the National Book Critics Circle Award–winning author of House of Holes and Double Fold. This simple action sets off a chain of reflections that is Proustian yet comic, as Mike ponders how long it takes a puff of air to cross a room, the limits of intimacy between husband and wife, the shame of nose-picking, and how peanut butter jars might be used to perform the music of Claude Debussy.

"In a classic pairing of form and content, meditations on the images of infancy develop into mature, if somewhat ingenuous, reflections on the transit to adulthood. This is a small masterpiece by an extraordinarily gifted young writer."—Publishers Weekly
