There is present a small speck of Donald Barthelme's alacrity, so that we often see throughout the narrator's eye during a moment of amused irritation. [Henry's] characters struggle with private dreams and demons and with public versus private realities. I think 'Congressman Spoonbender' is a wonderful story, and as with so many of the stories it's difficult not to feel uneasily, and perhaps a bit exhilaratingly, implicated.
