Speaking of Nicholson Baker (as I did in my previous post), I was not aware that he has a new book out. It's a work of nonfiction (as are some of his previous books) entitled Human Smoke. Here's the New York Times book review.
Also, here's a nice profile of Baker that the Times did a few weeks ago; it also talks about the new book.
I actually just bought A Box of Matches at Borders today with the proceeds of the gift card I got for Christmas (the book is tiny and cheap, so my $25 also scored me Gillian Welch's album Revival).
