Winner of more awards than can possibly be listed, including three National Book Critics Circle awards for his criticism, Gass is a critic's critic who makes us rethink our every act of reading. Here he's both deeply scholarly and deeply personal, discussing beloved writers (e.g., Kafka, Proust), issues (from the Holocaust to form and metaphor), and the humble sentence. For anyone serious about literature.[Page 59]. (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
