Here are some reviews published last month about Nicholson Baker's new novel, The Anthologist, a book length meditation on the nature of poetry, being a poet, etc.

"Poet, or Meter Reader?" (Washington Post)

"Rhyme and Unreason" (New York Times)
The Anthologist by Nicholson Baker (San Francisco Chronicle)

According to Slate, poet Charles Simic, who is mentioned in the novel, meta-referentially reviews The Anthologist . Unfortunately, a paid subscription is required to read the full review.
