In Sabbatical, John Barth presents a novel of suspense and intrigue, set in a small town in upstate New York at the height of the Cold War. When Dr. Leslie Robotham, a respected scholar and recluse, is found dead in his home, the townspeople are quick to point the finger at the Soviet Union. But when the body is exhumed and a strange, anachronistic wound is found on Robotham's neck, suspicion falls on the local psychiatric patient, Howard Wakefield. As the town begins to unravel, it becomes clear that Wakefield may not be the only one with secrets.; 8vo; Signed by Author.
