In 1971, writer Joseph McElroy published his third novel, the confessional-style Ancient History: A Paraphase. Ancient History was well received by critics at the time for its disjointed, almost frantic time structure. It will be re-released in paperback on March 25, accompanied by this new essay by Jonathan Lethem.
