Introduction by. Dave eggers. DONALD BARTHELME published seventeen books, including four novels and a prize-winning children’s book. Introduction by Dave Eggers. He was a longtime contributor to The New Yorker, winner of a National Book Award, a director of PEN and the Authors Guild, and a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
