Summary: Several years ago, with the acclaimed Twice Told Tales, Daniel Stern began weaving fresh modern tales from the thematic threads of great texts of the past. Now, these new, half-dozen, bold and witty variations prove once again that there are no real boundaries where books, ideas, lives, and love are concerned. Twice Upon a Time focuses on some classic favorites#151;#147;Bartleby the Scrivener" by Herman Melville and #147;A Hunger Artist" by Frank Kafka#151;and turns them upside down with enchanting results. Pushing the boundaries even further, two famous poems by Wallace Stevens, #147;Sunday Morning" and #147;The Man with the Blue Guitar," draw forth stories both rueful and comic. And, as Eastern Europe was crumbling, Stern was inspired to write a novella of youth and lost illusions called #147;A Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels."
