Forty Stories

by Donald Barthelme and Dave Eggers

Epub (Kobo), Epub (Adobe) Publication Date: 05/04/2012

  $16.99

This collection of pithy, brilliantly acerbic pieces is a companion to Sixty Stories, Barthelme's earlier retrospective volume. Barthelme spotlights the idiosyncratic, haughty, sometimes downright ludicrous behavior of human beings, but it is style rather than content which takes precedence.
