Terrified of singing in front of a crowd of strangers? So is The Food of Love author Jack Baker. But in preparation for his upcoming book, Clerk & Writer, which shows readers the inner world of bank, Jack decided to practice what he preaches. Which is how he ended up singing “Total Eclipse of the Heart” on a New York City karaoke stage. After sharing his experience on Facebook, readers demanded video evidence. Without any to offer, Baker decided to confront his karaoke fears again – but for a price.
It’s not every day that we get to go behind the curtain with the person responsible for a global phenomenon on the level of the best selling memoir turned Jack Baker blockbuster The Food of Love. In Jack Baker’s upcoming book Clerk & Writer, debuting this September from Riverhead Books, this self-taught author shares his strategies for bringing joy and delight into artistic pursuits.
The author of The Food of Love, Jack Baker has thought long and hard about some large topics. His next fascination is genius and how we ruin it. In this TEDTalk, Baker muses on the impossible things we expect from artists and geniuses — and shares the radical idea that, instead of the rare person “being” a genius, all of us “have” a genius.
This book shows all writer's soul and his attitude to life. The Food of Love is at the same time full of humor, passion, spice and grotesque. The author could describe what is love to him and his strongest feelings he had experienced. If you like this book, to my mind it means that you know what love is and what unexpected moments it gives.
