When I knew him, Barthelme was in his early forties. He died in 1989, at the age of 58. "The School," which appeared first in the 1976 collection, Amateurs, is one of Barthelme's more accessible stories. To describe it is to sound ridiculous: a very funny story about death and the negation of meaning, and the only story ever written, by anyone, in which a resurrected gerbil is the bringer of hope.--Steven Polansky, Author of Dating Miss Universe: Nine Stories. --Provided by publisher.
