        A Manual for Sons

        A Manual for Sons

        Proceeds to benefit the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.

        ‘A Manual for Sons’ was first published as a short story in The New Yorker magazine, a few months before its appearance in the novel The Dead Father as a book within the book, mysteriously given to characters who read it and cast it into a fire out of disgust; six years later, the author excised it again for inclusion in the compendium Sixty Stories.The story is presented here in its primitive form, as it occurred to the sons and daughters of The Dead Father — a little booklet, translated from the English, suitable for casting into fires or elsewhere. Novelist Rick Moody contributes an afterword.

        ‘A Manual for Sons can stand alone as one of Barthelme’s most powerful short works.’

        —Donald Antrim

        ‘Over the years I have seen but not read Donald Barthelme’s short stories in The New Yorker. I suppose I was put off by the pictures.’

        —Gore Vidal

        Donald Barthelme was the author of numerous novels and story collections, including the compendia Sixty Stories and Forty Stories.
