Signed yyped quote from a 1989 Time interview with author John Simmons Barth about variety in American literature and in literature in general
Typed quotation signed "John Barth". 1 page, 8½x10¾. Headed: "* JOHN BARTH */Author/Interview/Time Magazine/November 27, 1989". In full: "'I see the feast of literature as truly a smorgasbord. I wouldn't want a world in which there were only Balzac and Zola and not Lewis Carroll and Franz Kafka. The idea that because we (in the U.S.) live in a large and varied country we therefore ought to write the sweeping, panoramic novels is like arguing that our poets all ought to be like Walt Whitman rather than Emily Dickinson.'" American novelist, short story writer and educator Barth, born in 1930, began his career with two short novels, The Floating Opera (1957) and The End of the Road (1958), both dealing with controversial subjects. His later works include Giles Goat-Boy (1966), Chimera (1972) and The Tidewater Tales: A Novel (1987). Lightly toned and creased, otherwise in fine condition.
