The Last Voyage of Somebody the Sailor

John Barth

A National Book Award winner offers his most inventive novel to date. Journalist Simon Behler finds himself in the house of Sinbad the Sailor after being washed ashore during a seagoing adventure. Over the course of six evenings, the two take turns recounting their voyages in a brilliantly entertaining weave of stories within stories.

“His ability to contrive a really preposterous situation is impressive. His gift of gab is impressive, too.”
New York Times

“There is no one writing today who has the resources of his imagination or the depth of understanding about the nature of narrative.”
Richard Lehan, Los Angeles Times Book Review

“Barth can pick literature apart in a narrative, play with it, and finally make restoration just in time for it to accomplish its ancient purposes of amusement and revelation.”
Jack Richardson, The New Republic
