John Barth
Born in Maryland, Barth has set much of his fiction on the Eastern shore. His volume of short fiction, CHIMERA, which combines classic tales with modern psychological insight, won the National Book Award in 1972. Later in life, he taught at John Hopkins University.
"Idiosyncratic, outlandish--and a good read."
From the Publisher
Annotation The subtitle of John Barth's novel EVERY THIRD THOUGHT: A NOVEL IN FIVE SEASONS offers structural insight into this witty, wending novel about the past, the present, and how language provides serendipitous connections between now and then. G.I. and Amanda Newett, both professors at a liberal arts college in Maryland, experience an unexpected disaster when their home gets destroyed by a fluke tornado on the same day as the stock market crash that instigated the Great Depression 77 years ago. With nowhere to live, the couple decides to take a European vacation. While traveling, G.I. celebrates his 77th birthday on the first day of fall. That day he also falls down and hits his head, precipitating a series of visions on the first day of each of the subsequent four season. G.I.'s visions take him back to his childhood, through his first marriage, and into other critical moments of his past. His reflections on his visions, as well as his discussions with Amanda about them, provide the opportunity for Barth to showcase his well-known flair for language and explore themes that will resonate with many.
