520    In 2014, after a brief orientation course and a few 
       fingerprinting sessions, Nicholson Baker became an on-call
       substitute teacher in a Maine public school district. 
       Nearly every morning, he awoke to the dispatcher's five-
       forty a.m. phone call and headed to a nearby school. When 
       he got there, he did his best to follow lesson plans and 
       help his students get something done. In Baker's hands, 
       the inner life of the classroom is examined anew -- 
       mundane worksheets, recess time-outs, surprise nosebleeds,
       rebellions, griefs, minor triumphs, kindergarten show-and-
       tell, daily lessons on everything from geology to metal 
       tech to the Holocaust -- as he and his pupils struggle to 
       find ways to get through the day. Baker is one of the most
       inventive and remarkable writers of our time, and this 
       book, filled with humor, honesty, and empathy, may be his 
       most impressive work of nonfiction yet. --|cadapted from
