Product Details

Praise

“Frederick Barthelme is a master.”–The New York Times
 
“Sublime. . . . Barthelme seems to argue, we might still find a separate peace from the terrors of the wider world.”–Esquire 
  
 “Sophisticated, and wry. . . . A triumph of meaning—and writing. . . . A treasure of a book.”—Buffalo News
 
Waveland is signature Barthelme.”—Bookforum

“It’s impossible to conceive of any writer doing what he does any better than he does it.”—Margaret Atwood, The New York Times Book Review
 
“As clever and precise as a French farce; except that instead of doors opening sharply on one side and slamming shut on the other, these dangle indecisively ajar.”—The Boston Globe
 
“One of the most distinctive prose stylists since Hemingway.” —Vogue
 
“Barthelme’s latest is about loss…but it is also a recognition that starting over, however involuntarily, forces people out of habit and into building something that might hold up better this time.”–Maud Newton, NPR
 
“Barthelme’s eye and ear unerringly capture the moment he lives in.”—The Los Angeles Times
 
“Well-written and entertaining.”—St. Louis Tribune
 
“Illustrates the beauty that sympathetic, precise examination of people and places, stripped of any grandiosity or overcomplication, can convey.”—Philadelphia City Paper
