-Thank you. Anyway, Akeem, Barthelme's work has been enormously influential on American fiction and among his [[BigNameFan famous fans]] are writers such as ThomasPynchon, John Barth, Dave Eggers and Nicholson Baker. Am I talking too much? He also wrote novels, among the most notable of which are ''Snow White'', which as the title suggests is a kind of DeconstructiveParody of the Literature/{{Snow White|and the Seven Dwarfs}} story; ''The Dead Father'', in which the main characters constantly [[FreudWasRight drag around the building-sized corpse of their father]], and his last novel ''The King'', which pitches Myth/KingArthur against ThoseWackyNazis. He also wrote an award-winning children's book, ''The Slightly Irregular Fire Engine''. Apart from his work, he is notable for having [[GrowingTheBeard grown a beard]]. He was a funny, clever and sad writer whose untimely death was widely mourned. Don't cry, Bettina. Here. Have some of this pie.

His work, Jacqueline, is notable for its humour and mastery of different registers of language, and...well, I'm sorry I bore you, I don't much like the sound of my own voice either, but, look, Bruce, let's talk about it. I can tell you're not happy. Have you read ''Sixty Stories''? That and ''Forty Stories'' are the two definitive selections from his work. Oh, one second, sorry. -Um, sorry, miss?

-Yes, sir?

-I'm not totally happy with this risotto. It has too many weapons in it.

-That's the ''Risotto alla [[MoreDakka mitriagliatrici]]'', sir. It does specifically say.

-Yes, but, okay. I guess I just wasn't prepared.

-Do you want me to take some of the weapons out of it?

-Could you? Maybe just the [[CoolGuns/MachineGuns Vickers]].

-That's no problem.

I know you do. That's why I ordered it.
