On paper, Barthelme's novel seem awfully synonymous - marriage plots tackling middle age and matrimonial ennui somewhere along the gulf coast - his blend of unassuming prose and flip, wise-cracking dialogue never gets old for me. 

Each book is a timeless, soothing pleasure, like an evening idled away catching up with an old pal on a porch swing.
