Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Barthelme (1931-1989) was known chiefly for his short fiction, much of which appeared initially in The New Yorker magazine. He was also the author of several novels, children's books, miscellaneous non fiction, and film and book reviews. This book examines both the fiction and non fiction; it places Barthelme's work within the context of other postmodern disciplines, identifies his major themes, and analyzes his experiences with language and unique combination of irrealism and topical references.
