Summary
When John Barth's Lost in the Funhouse appeared in 1968, American fiction was turned on its head. Barth's writing was not a response to the realistic fiction that characterized American literature at the time; it beckoned back to the founders of the novel: Cervantes, Rabelais, and Sterne, echoing their playfulness and reflecting the freedom inherent in the writing of fiction.
