Praise for Final Fridays

“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

Praise for The Friday Book and Further Fridays

“There is no one else writing today who has the resources of Barth’s imagination.” —The New York Times Book Review

“A dilettante par excellence, Barth has read intelligently and indiscriminately enough to have something interesting to say at almost any time.” —Kirkus

“A reader leaves The Friday Book feeling intellectually fuller, verbally more adept, mentally stimulated, with algebra and fire of his own.” —The Washington Post

“The pieces brought together in The Friday Book reflect Mr. Barth’s witty, playful, and engaging personality . . . They are lively, sometimes casual, and often whimsical—a delight to the reader, whom Mr. Barth seems to be writing or speaking as a learned friend.” —The Kansas City Star
