Summary

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

As an added bonus, when you purchase our Audible Modern Vanguard production of Donald Barthelme's book, you'll also receive an exclusive Jim Atlas interview. This interview – where James Atlas interviews Tracy Daugherty about the life and work of Donald Barthelme – begins as soon as the audiobook ends.

This production is part of our Audible Modern Vanguard line, a collection of important works from groundbreaking authors.

Critic reviews

"A staccato burst of verbal star shells, pinwheel phrases, cherry bombs of Joycean puns and wordplays....An amusingly refurbished fairy tale novel of the absurd." ( Time)
"We hear the singing dwarfs of our childhood, and the voice of a splendid writer who knows how to turn spiritual dilemmas into logic, and how to run that logic into comedy, which is the true wised-up story of our time." ( Newsweek)
