Sam's Bar

Donald Barthelme, Seymour Chwast (Illustrator, Book designer, Bookjacket designer)
New Yorker denizen Barthelme and award-winning illustrator graphic designer Chwast have created within the walls of Sam's Bar the barroom atmosphere of exchange, self-pity, egoism, and interpretation. Sam, the bartender, listens sympathetically to stressed-out executives, out-of-work punk purists, frustrated artists, and debutantes who have come to talk. Forty patrons meet here to recreate their adventures and ruminate on the day's problems. They include a writer, a toy jobber, a lawyer, a dentist, a publicist, a policeman, a builder, and an accountant. ISBN 0-385-24264-6: $15.95
