about this book

The Floating Opera and The End of the Road are John Barth’s first two novels. His first novel, The Floating Opera, focuses on one day in the life of Todd Andrews as he recollects the events which determined his choice of life over suicide. The End of the Road, the novel which established Barth’s reputation, is set in an academic background and explores attitudes toward work, marriage and fidelity.
