By turns hilarious and brilliant, Coming Soon!!! is the tale of two writers: a retiring novelist setting out to write his last work and a young writer of hypertext intent on toppling his master.
They race each other to write a novel about a floating opera and the heat of the rivalry, the writers navigate - and sometimes stumble over - the fault lines between print and electronic fiction, mentor and mentored, postmodernism and modernism.
Coming Soon!!! is an extraordinary addition to Barth's distinguished career, a series of books that have shaped contemporary literature.
