Reviews

"Barthelme can focus our feeling into a bright point that can raise a blister. These 60 stories show him inventing at a fever pitch." --The Washington Post

"Donald Barthelme may have influenced the short story in his time as much as Hemingway and O' Hara did in theirs." --The New York Times

"The delight he offers to readers is beyond question, his originality is unmatched." --Los Angeles Times
