Description
A middle-aged architect separated from his wife, Simon is given the chance to live out a stereotypical male fantasyŚliving with three nubile lingerie models, who use him as a sexual object, in this novel by the PEN/Faulkner Awardľwinning author of Sixty Stories. Even as Simon tries to be "enlightened" and treat the women as human beings, he is already preoccupied by the thought that they will leave him, bringing his paradise to an end.

"Although Donald Barthelme has written 12 previous books of fictionŚcontaining some of the most innovative influential stories of our dayŚreading Paradise is a shock and a revelation."ŚNYTimes
