MICHELE NORRIS, Host:
For our series Three Books, writer Pat Dunnigan suggests three racy reads.
PAT DUNNIGAN: This is not a book I recommend without some misgiving, but Baker's subversive humor and mastery of language is worth every cringe. It's like finding a Penthouse centerfold inside a Faberge egg. You'd be crazy not to look.
NORRIS: That's writer Pat Dunnigan, author of the blog suburbankamikaze.com, and you can discuss those three racy reads and books of all sorts with other NPR listeners on Facebook. Search for NPR Books and then click on like.
