Description
Writing from the perspective of a character he introduced in his short story collection The Development, John Barth stays true to form in this story of seasonal coincidences. George I. Newett and his wife Amanda Todd lived in the gated community of Heron Bay Estates until it was destroyed by a fluke tornado—an event, Newett notes, that occurred on the 77th anniversary of the 1929 stock market crash. This detail might appear insignificant, were it not for several subsequent events; the Newett-Todds decide on a European vacation, during which George suffers a fall on his 77th birthday, the first day of fall. Following this coincidence, he experiences the first of what is to become five serial visions, each appearing to him on the first day of the ensuing seasons, and each corresponding to a pivotal event in that season of his life.

"Every Third Thought has more to say about life, death, the 'human condition,' and maybe most particularly and surprisingly the deathlessness of love, than an entire constellation of newer, prettier literary lights."—LAReview of Books

"Barth delivers yet another playful romp through the lives of characters both imprisoned and liberated by their constant urge to tell stories in language that shifts shape as constantly as their lives shift spaces ... a multilayered comic masterpiece."—Library Journal
