My favorite novel by John Barth. His story is told in three parts.
The first is a retelling of the A Thousand and One Arabian Nights tale. The second is a retelling of the Perseus tale. And the final section is a retelling of the Bellerophon tale.
However, the book is really about the art of storytelling and the dream of all authors to become immortal.
Do you know how many years it was before Ulysses became as well-known as it is today? I predict that in several hundred years, this will be known as one of the most important works of your time.
