      Personally, Sot-Weed Factor is my favorite, but it could be that this book is more interesting to someone from the West. Chimera is more universal (at least I assume Greek Mythology is more universal than American Colonial life), and since you enjoy that one so much I would say to start there...

      Hi Everyone
       
      I am Mehdy from Iran, I have M.A. in English Literature and I have already translated Vonnegut's last novel, Timequake into Persian. I came to know Barth a few years ago, but I couldn't find his novel until last year. I have read Floating Opera, End of the Road, Giles Goat Boy, and Lost in Funhouse. Right now I am reading Chimera which is one of the best books I have come across. Unfortunately nothing by Barth has ever been translated to Persian and most of elite Iranians do not know him, but I intend to break the ice and let my country mate know what a genius John Barth is. Any recommendations for what I translate first?
