Snow White

by Donald Barthelme
Release date: 1967
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy, mainstream

An inventive, satiric modern retelling of the classic fairy tale provides an incisive and biting commentary on the absurdities and complexities of modern life.

”Probably the most perversely gifted writer in the United States, Donald Barthalmy has created a new form of fiction...Snow White has everything, including William Burrough's cut ups, words posing as paintings, ribbled social commentary, crazy aesthetic experiments, and comedy that smashes.” – Webster Schott, Life

”We hear the singing dwarfs of our childhood, in the voice of a splendid writer who knows how to turn spiritual delimma into logic, and how to turn that logic into comedy which is the true wise-ed up story of our time.” – Jack Kroll, Newsweek
