When John Barth's Lost in the Funhouse appeared in 1968, American fiction was turned on its head. Barth's writing was not a response to the realistic fiction that characterized American literature at the time; it beckoned back to the founders of the novel: Cervantes, Rabelais, and Sterne, echoing their playfulness and reflecting the freedom inherent in the writing of fiction. This collection of Barth's short fiction is a landmark event, bringing all of his previous collections together in one volume for the first time. Its occasion helps readers assess a remarkable lifetime's work and represents an important chapter in the history of American literature. Dalkey Archive will reissue a number of Barth's novels over the next few years, preserving his work for generations to come.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: John BarthPublisher: Dalkey Archive PressPublished: 10/30/2015ISBN: 9781628970951Pages: 800Weight: 2.60lbsSize: 9.40h x 6.30w x 1.90dReview Citations: Publishers Weekly 08/03/2015Kirkus Reviews 08/15/2015 pg. 70New York Times Book Review 12/13/2015 pg. 32New York Times Book Review 12/20/2015 pg. 22
