WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Donald Barthelme's Snow White is not the happy Disney fantasy, nor is it the gruesome Brothers Grimm story. Written in fragments, in many voices, Barthelme's modern version of the fairy tale is a comedy about human beings in a state of crisis, a story of our most common delusions and disappointments with the other, and with the world, both being absurd and untrustworthy as they are. Seven men suffer anxiety over the loss of their life principle, Snow White, who has left them to pursue her personal liberation.
