Lost in the Funhouse
Garden City, Doubleday, 1968. Barth's innovative fifth book, his first that was not a novel. This is a collection of "fiction for print, tape, live voice." This copy belonged to the writer Geoffrey Wolff and bears his underlinings and marginal comments throughout, with a three point critique on the verso of the front flyleaf. Wolff reviewed books for Newsweek, The Washington Post and many other publications over the years, and tended to make his notes right in the books he read for review. An interesting glimpse at one writer's take on another writer's work, before filtering and shaping it into a review. Cloth mottled; near fine in a near fine dust jacket. [#028883] $125
