Tell me a story Katherine Shorter Sherritt Saga 8 12 months pregnant is a blue blooded library scientist and founding mother of the American Society for the Preservation of Storytelling Her husband Peter 8 12 months nervous is a blue collar storyteller with a penchant for brevity Sailing in the Chesapeake B. Tidewater Tales is John Barth’s nautical novel but his ship sails so slow as though there is a dead calm “There are two bombs aboard Much gets discussed and little or nothing gets done with excellent reason The twin bombs don’t go off and the passengers and crew go home and eat and drink and breathe some Over the years they get cancers and have heart attacks and give birth to defective children”The author’s voyage is a kind of uixotic journey and when two souls are lost in the sea this phenomenon is called solipsisme à deuxThe novel is a baggy compendium of tales and anecdotes and the story of Don uixote I liked best

The Tidewater TalesAy they tell each other tales to break the writer's block handed Peter by his Muse to ease the weight of Katherine's pregnancy to entertain and to enlighten Along with their stories we learn of the Bay itself past and present The beloved Chesapeake where young Peter once indulged his Huck Finn fantasy is in. While this book wasn't terrible it did make me cringe multiple times It's too clever for its own good and the ending nearly made me crazy with all of the tidy wrapping up of charactersThis is a story about literally giving birth to babies and to birthing or creating stories Kath and Peter are married nearly 40 and expecting twins Kath is 85 months pregnant at the outset and every reader knows that the entire story will end once she delivers Peter is a writer that has been suffering from a block of sorts when his wife asks him to tell her a storyThis story incorporates Huck Finn the Odyssey Don uixote 1001 Nights and a ridiculously cheesy play featuring talking eggs and sperm and takes place in someone's uterus with the events of their past and current lives The characters are totally wealthy yuppies before yuppies existed The gimmicky nature was just too much for me Plus at over 600 pages I do feel as though I have wasted my time to a certain extent
