The Institutionist

(That’s what I kept thinking Nicholson Baker’s new novel was called. The Institutionist. Did you mean: The Institutionalist?!?!??!)

(Still braindead.) Anyway:

Geoff Dyer on Nicholson Baker‘s The Anthologist (in the Abu Dhabi National):

It’s a bonkers idea, but as we all know, any given sentence can be galvanised by a single surprising word (which is also, as Yeats reminds us, exactly the right word).

In this case, my friends, that word is BONKERS!!
