Books By Author John Barth

Chimera by John Barth Chimera, Paperback (January 2016)

A National Book Award winner, this bawdy, comic trio of novellas finds John Barth injecting his signature wit into three tales many times told: that of Scheherazade, storyteller of the Thousand and One Nights; of Perseus, slayer of Medusa; and of Bellerophon, rider of Pegasus and slayer of the Chimera.

Once Upon a Time - A Floating Opera by John Barth Once Upon a Time - A Floating Opera, Paperback (January 2016)

"Originally published by Little, Brown & Company in 1994"--Title page verso.

Floating Opera by John Barth Floating Opera, Paperback (August 2015)

Written when John Barth was 24 years old, The Floating Opera is his first novel, published in 1957. It is a first-person reminiscence of the day Todd Andrews decided to commit suicide. Having picked up some sense of the French Existentialist writers from the postwar Zeitgeist, this novel questions life's value through the eyes of a 37-year-old man.
