Description
The National Book Award–winning author of Chimera, Lost in the Funhouse, and The Floating Opera, as well as the recipient of the F. Scott Fitzgerald Award and PEN/Malamud Award, John Barth regularly took a break from his Monday-through-Thursday fiction writing routine and dedicated Friday mornings to the muse of nonfiction. Following The Friday Book (1984) and Further Fridays (1995), this last collection offers 27 insightful essays on reading, writing, and the state of the art, as well as tributes to writer-friends and family members.

"Barth's writing is as ebullient and welcoming as ever.... This collection truly shines, however, when Barth focuses on his true passions: the craft of literature and the authors he has spent a lifetime reading, rereading, and admiring.... Whatever legacy Barth may leave as a novelist, this collection confirms his position as one of the most enthusiastic readers and most important novelist-teachers of 20th-century letters."—Publishers Weekly
