(From the publisher):
Snow White is Donald Barthelme's raunchy and hilariouse reworking of the classic fairy tale. Eschewing the formalism of earlier genres of fiction, Barthelme experiments with style and voice, taking the well-known characters of childhood and recasting them as sexually active and psychologically complex paradigms of postmodernist satire. His writing posseses a fantastic humor marked by a straightforward presentation of the absurdly grotesque, indicating the irrational nature of our everyday world.
