Book Description
The first novella of this lively triad, "Tell Me," explores a callow undergraduate's initiation into the mysteries of love, life, and the Heroic Cycle. The second novella, "I've Been Told," traces the history of storytelling and examines innocence and modernity, ignorance and self-consciousness. And the three elderly sisters of the third novella, "As I Was Saying," record an oral history of their youthful muse-like services to (and servicings of ) a subsequently notorious and now mysteriously vanished novelist. Sexy, humorous, and brimming with Barth's deep intelligence and playful irreverence, Where Three Roads Meet will surely delight loyal fans and draw new ones.
