"The secret life of our times (1973) as a contributor to this work by Gordon Lish" would be more appropriate to an exhastive bibliography, rather than a mere list of his published novels and volumes of stories, and so I have removed it. (Incidentally, the piece there anothologized was 'Dunyazadiad' from Chimera. 22:40, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

John Barth was an inspiration to me as a youth. I should re-read some of the books mentioned here. Peace, Ken Hausle. Charlotte, NC (Eastern) 3:26 pm, September 12, 2007.

Wasn't Barth also influential in helping found the field of psychology known as cosmopsis? Or is every gambler an optimist? Barth's writing is the industry of Bedlam, though we must accept the veracity of Todd's inquiry. Teetotaler 3 February 2009 —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:30, 3 February 2009 (UTC)


The basic info box on this page listed Barth as having died in 1997. I'm pretty sure that isn't true: he's published several books since then, for one thing. Anyway, I deleted that.Ellisjudd (talk) 17:13, 6 December 2009 (UTC)
