About the Author:

William Gass is the author of five books of fiction and five books of essays. He lives in St. Louis, Missouri.

Review:

Mr. Gass is an ironist of the highest caliber.... he is an improbable éminence grise of American letters, festooned with accolades; if there is any justice in the world he will one day get his Nobel prize.... As an essayist, his prose is gorgeously musical, ticking along smoothly as if measured out by metronome. He composes miniature fugues and conducts cadenzas while meandering around his subjects...

(Vladislav Davidzon The New York Observer)

The finest prose stylist in America.

(Steven Moore Washington Post)

Touch of Gass? This is class!
