Summary
Fourteen short literary experiments intended for perusal in sequence are set in contemporary society and classical Greece
Amazon.com description: Product Description: John Barth's lively, highly original collection of short pieces is a major landmark of experimental fiction. Though many of the stories gathered here were published separately, there are several themes common to them all, giving them new meaning in the context of this collection. As the characters search, each in his own way, for their purpose and the meaning of their existence, Lost in the Funhouse takes on a hiliarious, often moving significance.
