Sixty Stories

From the publisher:

This excellent collection of Donald Barthelme’s literary output during the 1960s and 1970s covers the period when the writer came to prominence—producing the stories, satires, parodies, and other formal experiments that altered fiction as we know it—and wrote many of the most beautiful sentences in the English language. Due to the unfortunate discontinuance of many of Barthelme’s titles, 60 Stories now stands as one of the broadest overviews of his work, containing selections from eight previously published books, as well as a number of other short works that had been otherwise uncollected.
