THE TIDEWATER TALES by John Barth ‧ RELEASE DATE: J For all its metafictional winks and high-jinks, Barth's latest tome fails to transcend its (ironically intended) self-description as "a novel in which next to nothing happens beyond an interminably pregnant couple's swapping stories.".

The Tidewater Tales. The Tidewater Tales is a novel by an American writer John Barth, published in The two main characters of the story are a married couple in their late thirties, Peter Sagamore and Katherine Sherritt Sagamore. Peter is a successful writer who is having a hard time writing his new book while trying to overcome a writer.

This novel is centered on the Chesapeake Bay in the late twentieth century; Barth is a delight to read strictly on the level of wordsmith, as well as for his surprising combinations of time and characters. Still, these stories don't really rise to the level of Barth at his best (i.e., _The Tidewater Tales_, _Sabbatical_, _The Tale of Somebody the Sailor_).

Barth is always worth reading, and is never boring, but these late tales whet the appetite for his earlier greatness rather than satisfying in their own right/5(20).
