Barth's most distinguished masterpiece, a parody of the historical novel. At first glance, this modern classic looks so long that reading it might be nearly as laborious as writing it, but Barth's hilarious tribute to all the worst human vices is endlessly inventive and the book is much shorter than it looks.
