Product Description

Beginning with the personal, both past and present, William Gass’s latest, dazzling collection of essays emphasizes his lifelong attachment to books and moves on to the more analytical, as he ponders the work of favorite authors, such as Kafka, Nietzsche, Henry James, Gertrude Stein, Proust. He writes about a few topics equally burning but less loved (the Nobel Prize-winner and Nazi sympathizer Kurt Hamsun; the Holocaust). Finally, Gass, at his Gassian best, ponders theoretical matters connected with literature, form and metaphor, and specifically, one of its prime genetic components – the sentence.
