“A body of writing that foils generic boundaries. . . . [Gass is] the supreme aesthetician.” —The Times Literary Supplement (London)
“Wonderful. . . . Vividly heartfelt. . . . The beautiful truth is that we need and can count on Gass for how he patiently investigates all forms.” —Bomb

“A monument to Gass’s brilliance as a postmodern fictioneer and a peerless genius of a critic.” —St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“His final offering, The William H. Gass Reader, is a gift. . . . Gass makes us want to read more, and to read better.” —The Millions

“A joy to read. . . . Eloquent, erudite.” —The New York Journal of Books

“A fitting grand finale to an impressive and influential career. . . . Here is the consciousness of a devoted, playful, skeptical intelligence. . . . Literature is finally catching up with him, and this compendious, literary extravaganza should spark a Gass revival.” —Kirkus Reviews
