Three Percent #190: John Barth

In honor of two recent John Barth reissues—The Sot-Weed Factor and Chimera, both Dalkey Archive Essentials—John Domini (The Archeology of a Good RàguThe Color Inside a Melon, and this appreciation of Barth, among other works) and Max Besora (author of the intro to Sot-Weed Factor along with the very much Barth inspired The Adventures and Misadventures of the Extraordinary and Admirable Joan Orpí, Conquistador and Founder of New Catalonia) joined Chad W. Post to talk about these two titles and Barth’s overall impact on the literary scene. It’s a long, interesting conversation with a Spanish superfan and a former student of Barths. Well worth the listen!

The music on this episode is “Say It Isn’t So” by The Sot Weed Factor. (Who knew this existed??)
