About
The Dead Father is a gargantuan half-dead, half-alive, part mechanical, wise, vain being who still has hopes for himself--even while he is being dragged toward a mysterious goal. In this extraordinary novel, Donald Barthelme offered a glimpse into his unique fictional universe. As Donald Antrim writes in his introduction, "Reading The Dead Father, one has the sense that its author enjoys an almost complete artistic freedom ... a permission to reshape, misrepresent, or even ignore the world as we find it... Laughing along with its author, we escape anxiety and feel alive."
