Description
Described on its title page as "an old time epistolary novel by seven fictitious drolls & dreamers each of which imagines himself factual," this 1979 novel by the author of Every Third Thought and The Last Voyage of Somebody the Sailor presents seven characters (including the Author himself) exchanging letters during a seven-month period in 1969. Recapitulating American history as well as the plots of his first six novels, John Barth's book is a witty and profound exploration of the nature of revolution and renewal, rebellion and reenactment, and a meditation on the genre of the novel itself.

"By turns, enormous and exhilarating, subtle and silly, brilliant and boisterous."Baltimore Sun

"A work of genius."NYTBR
