Second Marriage

Frederick Barthelme, Author Penguin Books $6.95 (224p) ISBN 978-0-14-008274-6
A contemporary marital union is the framework for Barthelme's first novel, which is marked by his ability to make ordinary events magically revelatory, to make the familiar vicissitudes of marriage startling. Although the rich wit occasionally sags toward vaudeville, ""this is a striking performance that admits its fabricator to the front ranks of contemporary writers,'' PW observed. December
