Sobre l'autor

Donald Barthelme was born on April 7, 1931, and was one of the major U.S. short story writers and novelists of the late twentieth century. Barthelme satirized American life. Born in Philadelphia, Barthelme spent part of his early life in Houston, Texas, and began to write fiction while working as a mostra'n més journalist, director of an art museum and university publicist. These occupations became fuel for his creative fire. His arsenal of techniques included parodies of television shows, radio plays and recipes, long and elaborate metaphors, complex dream sequences, and a break-neck narrative pace. After the publication of his first collection, Come Back Dr. Caligari (1964), Barthelme became a full-time writer of short stories and novels. The latter included Snow White (1967), The Dead Father (1975), and Paradise (1986). Barthelme also published three more short story collections, 60 Stories (1981), Overnight to Many Distant Cities (1983), and 40 Stories (1987). Barthelme died of cancer in 1989.

Biografia breu
Donald Barthelme was born in 1931 in Philadelphia. He was a longtime contributor to The New Yorker, winner of a National Book Award, a director of PEN and the Author's Guild, and a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters. His sixteen books -- including Snow White, The Dead Father, and City Life -- substantially redefined American short fiction for our time. In 1972 he won the National Book Award for children's literature for The Slightly Irregular Fire Engine of the Hithering Thithering Djinn. He died in 1989.

De las pocas veces que no he podido terminar un libro a la primera. Al segundo intento pude acabarlo (agradezco su brevedad) pero sigue sin gustarme.

this is another of those books where I feel I'm missing something big. each story consists of like a series of often surreal images, lines of speech or vignettes. for most stories the extent to which each segment fits together is very unclear and they only rarely fit into a coherent whole. Sometimes they do but you're just left going huh and wondering if you're missing something anyway. some of the images and words are good but a lot of them don't bring up any associations or ideas or anything for me. there is also a lot of confusing relatively long descriptions. a few of the stories are good, although not incredibly so. mostly I just feel like I'm reading and understanding the words but nothing more, it's not bringing up any emotions or ideas or anything on a regular basis, it's rarely interesting, just words. it's frustrating because it's not as if I hate it I'm just not feeling anything

and some are good like the new owner which is about how landlords are bad

I love Barthelme's shorter works, but I didn't enjoy this one at all, and and abandoned it after about fifty pages. To me, his writing style, so laden with irony, didn't suit the longer form. Such a constant barrage of irony on so many levels just left me alienated and failing to care. Maybe one day I'll come back to this and see what it has to offer.

This collection is full of experimentation and humor and probably some deep thoughts that I totally missed, and I'm glad it exists for whoever the receptive audience is.
