From Nicholson Baker, best-selling author of VOX and the most orginal writer of his generation.

Meet Jay. Meet Ben. Jay has summoned his old friend Ben to the hotel room in the nation's capital. During the course of an afternoon, they will share a delicious lunch and will crack open a bottle of wine from the hotel minibar. They will chat about everything from Ben's new camera to the Iraq, to the unfortunate fate of a particular free-range chicken.
And Jay will explain to Ben exactly why and how he is planning to commit a murder that will change the course of history.
