"You Are as Brave as Vincent van Gogh" — Donald Barthelme (1976)

3

I read this wonderful short story in the New Yorker when it came out; it's since been included in "Flying to America: 45 More Stories," a 2007 collection of the author's sui generis short fiction.

Above and below, the final three of the five pages of the piece.

You say you want to read the first two pages so you can enjoy it the way the author intended?

Buy a copy of the book for 21 cents here.

Many of the stories in the 2007 collection, as well as a number of others, along with much about the author, here.

One of my favorite authors of the era. His piece on Viet Nam reads like a mash up between Mark Twain and Dr. Strangelove.
