Product Details

Praise

“Enthralling and inventive. . . . Gass delights with devious wordplay, rhetorical gymnastics and luscious description.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune

“William Gass [is] our greatest living champion of the sentence.” —The New York Review of Books

 “Dazzlingly literary. . . . This is the kind of bracing writing that you can really feel, and it makes you feel more alive.” —Paste
 
“Mesmerizing. . . . Compelling.” —The Huffington Post

“Impressive. . . . Demonstrates Gass’s continued experiments with narrative form.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Powerful, passionate. . . . Gass at his best and most mysterious. . . . All of [the stories] are distinguished by Gass’s dry wit, verbal facility and rich prose style.” —St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“Brilliant. . . . A wonderful entry point into the Gassian literary cosmos.” —Electric Literature

“Quietly suspenseful, emotionally lustrous. . . . The literary equivalent of a Jackson Pollock painting, seething, trenchant, hilarious. . . . Gass is a mind-bending original of phenomenal brilliance, artistry, wit, and insight.” —Booklist (starred review)

“Excellent. . . . [Gass is] an exquisite maker of sentences, weighing his prose like a poet for rhythm, consonance, and intellectual heft.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Gass proves himself a master diviner, able to tap the deepest and most mysterious reservoirs.”Publishers Weekly
