Overview


Frederick Barthelme's wry and wonderful stories have given us a stunning, cautionary, funny, sometimes bleak, and often transcendent portrait of contemporary life in the sprawl of suburban America. Barthelme made his remarkable debut with these tender and affectionate stories, most of which were originally published in The New Yorker. Moon Deluxe received the high praise of such writers as John Barth, Raymond Carver, Ann Beattie, and Margaret Atwood, and earned Barthelme a permanent place in the pantheon of contemporary American writers. In these stories he delicately probes the peculiar corners of contemporary culture, capturing the fast and often touching ways we relate to each other and to the time in which we live.

Editorial Reviews

Margaret Atwood
"Moon Deluxe is engaging, observant and at times downright whack-in-the-solar-plexus mean. It's impossible to conceive of any writer doing what he does any better than he does it." -- The New York Times Book Review

What People are saying about this

Max Apple
"Frederick Batheleme is such a studious observer of the real that it's a shock time after time in these stories to realize how fantastic the everyday is....A wonderful book."
Ann Beattie
"The gradual revelations that lead Frederick Bathelme's characters to an acceptance and new understanding of things is surprising, subtle, and convincing. Moon Delux is a fine collection of stories."
