Description
This is the story of Arno Strine, a modest temporary typist, who has perfected the knack of stopping time in its tracks—a power that he uses not to steal or destroy, but to take women's clothes off, and then put them back on. He is hard at work on his autobiography, The Fermata, which proves in the telling to be a very provocative, very funny, and altogether morally confused piece of work. Having explored phone sex in the popular novel Vox, Nicholson Baker offers this outrageous, acrobatically stylish "X-rated sci-fi fantasy that leaves Vox seeming more like mere fiber-optic foreplay" (Seattle Times). Stage, film and television actor Peter Ganim performs this unabridged reading.

"The book is bursting with sex and beauty, wound together profoundly and pornographically. It is bountifully Rabelasisan and intensely refined. I have never read anything quite like it. Misogynists will definitely not like The Fermata; there is not one iota of violence towards or contempt for women in this book. Wildly exhilarating and confirming. The Fermata should be celebrated."—Mary Gaitskill
